CityStore Self-Storage Environmental Commitment
CityStore Self-Storage has a commitment to reducing our carbon footprint and to reducing our effect on the environment. Here are some of the ways in which we are.
How we build our storage centres
Wherever possible, we aim to refurbish existing buildings rather than build from new. This dramatically reduces the energy used in constructing a storage centre as it avoids demolishing the existing building and rebuilding from scratch.
Lighting inside our storage centres
All the lighting in the corridors and in the storage units is controlled by PIR (Passive Infra-Red) sensors which automatically turn on and off with the arrival and departure of customers. This ensures that no lights are left on in the warehouse unnecessarily.
External / security lighting is fitted with ambient light level sensors to ensure activation only when dark.
All our boxes are manufactured using recycled materials wherever possible. We sell a range of strong cardboard boxes in a variety of sizes as well as 2 sizes of plastic crates.
