Chimical and biological waste
From January 2019, EPFL will launch a new waste management concept: EcoPoint. This is a centralized collection point whose objective is to recover recyclable materials and reduce the volume of incinerable waste. The objective is also to standardize containers and waste-related signage throughout the site by the end of 2020.
