Waste on campus
At the University of Twente, we try to separate it as much as possible to facilitate recycling and what cannot be recycled we dispose of properly, safely and responsibly. On this page, you can find information about what waste goes where.
In all buildings on campus, you will find waste isles where you can seperate the four main waste streams. Places to dispose of less common waste, such as styrofoam or printer toners, can also be found.
What goes where
The four main waste streams are paper, organic, PMD and residual waste. Here, you can find what waste goes where.
Still not sure?
Below you can find a more extensive list of permitted and not-permitted waste for each waste stream.
Other waste streams
Here, you can find information about where you can dispose of less-common waste that does not fit the four main waste streams..
What happens to my waste?
Waste that you throw away on campus is collected and sorted by an employee of Asito, our cleaning company, or by a colleague from facility services. Outside, grounds maintenance company Krinkels collects the waste. It is then taken and processed by PreZero. More information about the collection schedule can be found here.
Waste collected at the UT is processed in several ways, ranging from incineration with energy recovery to recycling. By correctly sorting waste, you can help to reduce the amount of waste that is unneccesarily incinerated.
