Recycling at Campus Gotland

Återvinning på Campus Gotland

Students, staff and visitors at Campus Gotland are asked to put and sort their waste at any of our 17 recycle stations located in all our buildings (A-, B-, C-, D-, E-, and F-building).

Every time you bring a package or a paper to a recycle station, something magical is happening. The old cap can be used in the production of sheet metal for a car body. Yesterday’s magazine will be tomorrows reading. The resources of nature are being reused and a huge amount of energy is saved. By doing this, we all contribute to a better world to live in.

.. in order to increase the reuse of materials, we have removed the bins in the classrooms. Please use our recycle stations instead!

Sustainable consumption

Sweden is good at recycling, and is improving! At the same time, the level of consumption is increasing and the waste accumulating. This means that recycling is not good enough, we need to step down on the waste hierarchy and reduce the rubbish by lower the lever of consumption.

The Waste Hierarchy
  • Reduce – Do you really need to buy it? Avoid unnecessary rubbish and save some money.
  • Reuse - Before you throw it, think. Is there any other way you can use it?
  • Recycle as much as possible when you have reduced and reused.
