    Centre of green action
    Sutton’s
    Times Square Shopping Centre has become one of Britain’s first Green
    Heroes.The award was made by the Green Organisation, an independent
    international environment group dedicated to recognising, rewarding and
    promoting environmental best practice around the world.The new accolade
    comes just six months after Times Square was awarded a Green Apple
    Environment Award for highlighting the benefits of recycling empty
    toner and printer cartridges and unwanted mobiles.Its winning entry has
    now been published in the Green Book, the only global work of reference
    on environmental best practice, to enable other companies, councils and
    communities around the world to benefit from the centre’s experience
    and success.To mark Times Square’s commitment to helping others it has
    been awarded an inscribed Green Heroes plaque.”Statistics show that out
    of 30million printer cartridges disposed of each year only five per
    cent are recycled and that dumped cartridges contribute over 300,000
    tonnes of largely non-biodegradable solid waste to landfill sites,”
    said Times Square’s centre manager Noel Bergmann.”Similarly, millions
    of mobile phones and their batteries are buried in landfill sites and
    allowed to corrode, causing toxic chemicals to leak into the
    soil.”Faced with staggering waste the centre provides a collection
    point for the toners, cartridges and mobile phones and the money it
    raises through recycling them is donated to charity.The collection
    point can be found on the ground floor at Times Square Shopping Centre.
