Waste management at EPFL
More than 70% of the waste generated at EPFL is recycled!
The objective is to further increase this recycling rate but also to reduce the amount of waste produced on campus.
EcoPoints for recycling paper, aluminum cans, PET bottles and glass.
Building waste collection center for inks and toners, all coffee or tea capsules, cardboard.
The main waste collection center collects any type of waste produced on campus.
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.
