  • A reminder to all please do not place the used coffee pods in the re-cycling bin in the café area – unfortunately these type of pods are not able to be recycled.
  • When you are using the rubbish chutes please be aware of the apartments in the near vicinity of the chutes and ensure that both the chute and rubbish room doors are closed gently. Also please check if using the re-cycling option of the chute that you press the far left button and wait until it illuminates yellow before depositing, otherwise the re-cycling will go down the normal rubbish chute.
