More and more people have become accustomed to sorting waste at home. These good habits must be continued as a natural part of the study and working life at AAU. During the fall of 2020, central waste sorting will be introduced around Campus Esbjerg, Copenhagen and Aalborg. At the same time, the individual office waste bins are phased out.
Central waste sorting allows you to sort into several categories / waste fractions, such as metal, plastic, bio, cardboard, paper, glass, textile, flamingo and residual waste, as well as food and food cartons and hazardous waste. Several waste categories may apply, which is why it is possible to make separate agreements with Campus Service for collection.
Where can I find the new waste bins?
The new waste bins are located in central locations in each building such as common areas, main entrances, by auditoriums and by kitchens. Plastic, bio and residual waste are sorted in the waste bins in the central areas. The paper waste is sorted for recycling in the printer compartments. The remaining waste categories are sorted in the rooms dedicated for waste handling.
Where can I find the rooms dedicated for waste handling?
You must sort and bring your cardboard box and flamingo packaging into the waste bin yourself. The rooms dedicated waste handling are located close to each building, either inside or outside.
Together we will ensure effective waste sorting at AAU
The increased sorting of our waste enables AAU to send the pure waste categories for recycling. We are constantly expanding categories and guides for sorting on this page. Please contact us directly by email: firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or inquiries about the sorting.
If you find an error in one or more of the sorted categories, e.g. that a paper container has been destroyed with food waste, you can advise Campus Service via the AAU Building Support app - download it HERE. With your tip, we in Campus Service have the opportunity to save the waste category so that most of it can be recycled - thanks! We appreciate your contribution.
