Leeds Jewish Welfare Board has a robust environmental steering group to drive forward environmentally friendly and ethical policies which will reduce the Board’s carbon emissions. Mindful of the need to safeguard the environment for future generations, The Board is taking practical steps and asking all visitors to the Centre to remember to switch off lights and turn off taps. Office staff are looking at paper bulk buying, double sided printing and recycling as well as more energy efficient means of insulation and waste disposal.’
We have sixteen recycling bins. The ‘Slim Jim’ containers provide a flexible recycling system for each floor of the Marjorie & Arnold Ziff Community Centre consisting of interchangeable bodies and colour-coded lids. The different lids for paper, cans and bottles or general refuse, mean the containers can be easily identified for the correct materials. LJWB’s charity shop, ‘thewellfairshop’, also uses a ‘Steelybin’ container to store clothes unsuitable for re-sale before they are taken for recycling.
