Affinity Business Centre today announces a new partnership with local more than profit company, Doorstep Glass Recycling
Doorstep Glass Recycling provides a monthly glass collection service for a regular small fee, and donates much of the proceeds to local foodbanks. Driven by a strong social mission, the organisation is focused on improving the local community, by providing an alternative glass solution for home and business owners. The company uses the proceeds to provide local support to those in need, most notably by delivering 1000 Christmas meals in the Dundee and Angus area.
Affinity Business Centre, home to many Dundee employers including main contractor McGill, is committed to shrinking its carbon footprint, and has been working towards its own net-zero target. In recent years it has installed a wind turbine to power the site, and in 2021 invested in a number of electric vehicle charging points to power the ever-expanding electric vehicle fleets of their tenants. The business centre is part of The Carling Group, which is committed to making all of its buildings carbon neutral, and solar panels are set to be the next step in the centre’s complete sustainability solution.
Affinity Business Centre Managing Director Paul McGillvery, commented “Doorstep Glass Recycling is a business with a strong social mission and a desire to improve the local community, so it aligns well with our own focus on sustainability. All too often glass ends up in landfill sites, and we’re keen to do our bit to make sure that as much of it as possible is recycled. As part of our net-zero approach, we’re constantly thinking creatively about how we can help our tenant businesses to become more sustainable in a range of ways, and this exciting partnership is another step in that process.”
