Welcome to the Bristol Hackspace Wiki

There are several bins -

In G11:

  • Recycling - round red plastic bin by the back door
  • Landfill - 2 x Black bins one by the back door, other by the sink
  • Metal recycling - big blue labelled box under the desk on the right by the back door.
  • Electric waste - there are fresh, recent, and stale bins for donations - green plastic crates on the left side of the back door.

In G10:

  • Landfill - tall black bin
  • others?
Recycling

When the red bin is full, take it to the BV Studios bins, which are by the main BV entrance down the corridor near the toilets.

BV recycling take:

  • Cardboard
  • Paper
  • Cans (aluminium or tin cans)
  • Plastics
  • Plastic food containers as long as they are washed

No glass, no general waste, nothing wet: dry and clean materials only. Glass goes into Landfill bin.

Landfill
  • General waste is put in the same place as the recycling, different bin (BV Studios bins, which are by the main BV entrance down the corridor near the toilets)
  • Glass should be put in landfill, or taken home - there's no glass recycling at BV Studios
  • The landfill bin in G11 should be emptied at the end of Thursday evening.

Metal recycling
  • The scrap metal man (phone by the back door) needs to be called once per month.
Electrical waste
  • Fresh, recent, and stale bins for donations - everything can be hacked on and everything gets moved on after a week to the next level.
  • Electrical waste in “stale” needs to be taken to the municipal tip once per month - please volunteer.
