Sustainability @ wallacespace

At wallacespace we believe that a clear conscience is important for clear thinking. Our sustainability practices mean a
lot to us and we strive to reduce our environmental impact and have a positive effect on the world around us.

Recycle

Recycling

We have two bins in each room. One for food recycling and one for all other waste. All of our waste is sent to First Mile to be sorted and 98% is recycled.

We don’t send anything to landfill, recycling 98% of our waste. Anything that can’t be recycled is turned into energy by First Mile, our waste
disposal people.

We recycle all of our tech, including ink cartridges, batteries, screens and laptops.

faqs

Everything! We have general and food recycling bins in every room and floor to put waste in. First Mile, our waste disposal people, collect and process waste responsibly through their award winning sorting facility. Waste is sorted, recycled, re-purposed or turned into green energy so nothing is sent to landfill.

If you don’t need to take your training materials back with you after your training has finished, we’re able to dispose of your materials through our usual recycling process or put them into confidential waste depending on how sensitive your documents are.

All our menus are seasonal and are locally sourced where possible. Our fish is MSC certified which means we only use fish that is sustainable, usually this is haddock, salmon and tuna. Our meat and veg are always fair-trade to help producers in developing countries achieve better trading condition.
