Envirobank- Now Rewarding you to Recycle


8 June 2010

Envirobank Machines are a Reverse Vending Machine in which staff and students insert their empty aluminium cans and PET 1 or 2 plastic bottles in exchange for the chance to win instant prizes. This month's instant win prizes include Hoyts movie tickets.

Currently Envirobank machines are operating at the Faculty of Economics and Business, situated in the H69 foyer area, and at the left of the verandah entrance to H03 Lecture Theatres. A new machine is also to be installed soon in the Architecture building.

The installation of Envirobank machines was driven by members of the Sustainable Workplace Team as a way to reduce the amount of waste the University sends to landfill. The Sustainable Workplace team is an initiative which brings together staff from each Faculty and Professional Services Unit of the University to act as green workplace champions who assist their colleagues to take action for a more sustainable future. For more information or to join the team please contact Joel Turner, Sustainable Workplace Coordinator, Campus Infrastructure Services.
