Waste treatment

There are two different kinds of bins avalaible in the offies of CAU: One for paper and one for residual waste. The pre-sorted waste is collected by the cleaning staff in separated garbage bags and is afterwards brought away to approriate waste bins outside the buildings. The company Abfallmanagement Nord (AMN), a local trash management service, is re-sorting the waste again at the trash points on campus (see pictures below).

If you have any recommendations, please contact Roland Jolitz
