Please make sure to dispose of your waste correctly

2 December 2020

Recently, our building's facilities manager Jaap Hoff was confronted with broken ceramics in the glass recycle container. In the recycling process, ceramics will not burn, nor is it possible to remove these magnetically, therefore the recycling process will be disrupted. Please throw your broken ceramics in the residual waste bins.

Another issue is that office waste is currently not correctly separated. Please keep in mind to separate your waste according to the lists indicated on the bins. Disposable coffee cups, for example, should not be thrown in the plastic bin, but either in the designated cup bin, or in the general waste bin. This will help the recycling process tremendelously.
