ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY STATEMENT
George Yard Shopping Centre is committed to compliance with environmental legislation and pollution prevention and seeks to make continual improvement in achievements in these fields.
TAKE A NEW BAG SHOPPING
As part of the 2008 Environment Week event, George Yard Shopping Centre launched its' new reusable bag to help shoppers and tenants alike......not to mention the planet.
ESSEX WILDLIFE TRUST
George Yard became a corporate member of the Essex Wildlife Trust in 2007 and is pleased to have continued its membership since then.
The Centre has been enabling recycling of a considerable proportion of the total waste produced on site for some years. Paper and cardboard are sorted out of the waste stream by tenants and centre staff. Plastic (largely soft sheeted plastic) is also separated, baled and taken by a recycling contractor. Taking paper and plastic out means a reduction of about 50% of the waste stream prevents it going to landfill.
