Waste materials

The university has separated collection, environmentally-friendly processing and recycling of waste materials.
The Facility Department entered into a contract with Suez from 1 January 2017 onwards for the disposal of waste.

Collection Schedule

The different waste flows have fixed collection days. The overview below shows which dates it concerns. Temporary additional waste containers can be ordered through your building's Service Desk. The manual for the disposal of industrial waste and hazardous waste is available via your building's waste contacts. This manual, among other things, describes what can and cannot be disposed of and how hazardous waste must be packaged and provided for collection.

Collection Schedule

Note: the collection days of the swill and glass containers have changed with respect to 2016 from Tuesday and Wednesday respectively to Monday!
