While customers enjoy our stores, restaurants and leisure facilities, there’s a whole network of systems in place that are working hard to ensure the centre is safeguarding our environment.
The centre has a zero waste to landfill policy and the following waste streams are segregated on-site for recycling: cardboard, plastics, paper, mixed metals, food and green waste. Since changing waste contractor earlier in the year, the centre has recycled more waste to energy, producing RDF or refuse derived fuel.
The centre also minimises energy consumption in a number of ways using natural ventilation in the summer months, opening entrance doors and smoke vents, rather than operating air conditioning systems, maintaining set-point temperatures for heating and movement-detection sensors to control lighting.
In creating sustainable solutions for everyday processes, we hope to ensure the enjoyment of Surrey Quay’s natural surroundings for future generations.
