Recycling With over 8300 students and more than 2800 faculty members and staff, the HSG produces a significant amount of waste every day. Consequently, a comprehensive recycling plan is in use, with waste sorted and then distributed to the University’s recycling partners. PET PET (polyethylene terephthalate) and aluminium containers as well as boxes for paper collection are found across the campus. Paper Despite the use of computers and iPads, paper is still one of the most frequently used materials. On average, 50 tonnes of paper (incl. cardboard) are used annually. Paper and cardboard are not only collected and distributed for recycling, but also separated according to their different qualities, which ensures the most efficient recycling process. Metals Metal and polystyrene are also separated from the rest. Moreover, Nespresso capsules are separated and forwarded to the respective recycling operator.
