The locked blue bins at the civic offices contain canvas sacks. There is a higher charge for the disposal of confidential waste. Staff are encouraged to only place confidential papers in these bins with non-confidential papers being placed in the green lidded recycling bins.
The sacks are changed by the porters, who will then seal each sack with a plastic tie then transfer to a locked cage before being collected by the contractor.
Confidential waste brought to the Civic Offices from outstations must be in canvas sacks and sealed with the plastic ties. The contractor issues a certificate of destruction.
Please ensure each sack of confidential waste is not too heavy to be lifted - shredded paper does not need to go through the confidential waste process.
