As part of Thirteen’s Take Control campaign to reduce our carbon footprint and help the environment, we're marking Global Recycling Day, today (Thursday 18 March).

Global Recycling Day is an initiative of the Global Recycling Foundation dedicated to recognising the importance of recycling.

Thirteen’s director of facilities management Scott Lowther said: “As an organisation I’m very proud that we’re leading the way with our own environmental centre, which has allowed us to gain complete control over the way in which we handle our waste management and processing.

“This state-of-the-art environmental centre puts Thirteen at the forefront of its green agenda. We’re working towards reducing our waste to landfill by as much as 95% by reducing, upcycling and recycling our waste.

“We’re looking forward to sharing further updates as we create more employment opportunities and further educate and engage with the community on the impacts on the environment.”
