Throw your coffee cup in a separate waste bin

21 January 2019

As of February, Leiden University is going to recycle its plastic, metal and drink package flow (PMD). Up until recently, this was not possible for Dutch companies such as educational institutions. Leiden University is the first university in the Netherlands to do this.

Recycling coffee cups

The only noticeble difference is that from February there is a seperate Paper Cup waste bin for your coffee cups. The used coffee cups will then go to a paper factory that will turn the cups into toilet paper. By separating coffee cups from PMD we can recycle more efficiently.
