Recycling at LCK
in the footsteps of Leigh Creek Energy’s (LCK) strategy announcement to
becoming Carbon Neutral by 2030, our Adelaide office have taken on various recycling
programs to help reduce our carbon footprint around the office. We have a 2-system recycling bin set up in
the common area basement in our building however staff at LCK felt this was not
enough, so we decided to implement our own.
small and built up to numerous recycling points throughout the office. First was a recycling battery station where
we contain all our used batteries and once full we deposit them at the recycling
point in the CBD.
also implemented sending our printer cartridges back to the supplier who
recycle the plastic and metal components. However, our cartridge use has
reduced significantly as we have been aiming to become a paperless office with
a new motto of “STOP and THINK, is printing really necessary?” For any paper
used or received externally we have paper recycling bins located throughout the
office which a local shredding company take to recycle.
addition to our recycling program was the implementation of our 3 system
kitchen bins. Landfill, recyclables and
bottles/cans. LCK staff have really
taken to the system very quickly and it is very encouraging to see the effort
to reduce our footprint by all staff.
Our Senior Hydrogeologist Damian Newham said “Sometimes
we just have to start somewhere, recycling our office items in a building which
doesn’t offer the service may just start a revolution. We are trying to do what
we can, where we can”
LCK is committed to helping make the world a more
sustainable place not just for now but for years to come.
