IBM has a general recycling policy which seeks to reuse or recycle about 50 per cent of the non-hazardous waste produced by the company.6 When in 1993 the company decided to demolish an office block in the heart of an estate of computer laboratories at Hursley near Winchester, it decided to collapse the 1960s building subject to the following criteria:
