Separating waste at the UG
Since the end of March 2021 onwards, the UG has started to separate waste at its source. This means that we are not only separating waste after collection; the UG environment has also been equipped to enable staff and students to separate their waste when throwing it away. To this end, we have deployed waste islands. This page offers information about separating waste at its source.
The waste policy objectives are ambitious: the UG wants to reduce its amount of residual waste, and all residual waste must be circular by 2026. The aim is to make the university more sustainable, this policy taps into one of the university’s values.
UG waste policy objectives 2021-2026
- By the end of 2026, 95% of all hazardous and non-hazardous waste will be separated
- 15% reduction of the total amount of waste by 2025 compared to 2020
- Strive to make all residual waste circular by 2026
By separating waste at its source, waste flows that can be recycled are created. This will eventually result in the elimination of waste; it will all be able to be reused as raw materials.
