The UT collects its waste separately. Where possible, the separated supplies of waste are recycled and processed in an environmental-friendly way by the waste processing company Van Gansewinkel. The table shows how much waste staff and students have produced at the UT over the past 5 years. It is no surprise that this is a considerable amount: the amount of residual UT waste in 2010 is comparable with the waste of 1,546 families!

The large amount of bulky waste produced in 2009 and 2010 is easy to explain. All relocations to the new O&O centre required a great deal of clearing out.
