Stores in the arc have been successfully slimming their bins and more than 65 per cent of the centre’s waste is now recycled.

The shopping centre is managed by CBRE which has launched its Green Week campaign to promote sustainable management of its properties.Staff at the arc’s offices will be joining the campaign whereby they will undertake Zero print, Slim Bin and Turn Off projects in the offices.

This is in addition to the centre’s ongoing committment to sustainable retailing which has lead to the good recycling rate.

Colin Roberts, arc manager, presented awards to managers at Clarks and New Look in recognition of their efforts.

He said: “All our retailers have really come on board with this campaign, but these two have really gone the extra mile in separating recycled materials so that virtually nothing from either store has had to go to landfill. It’s a real credit to both stores, the managers and staff.”
