Terra is going to collect circular waste

Terra stands for a clean and sustainable living environment. We are therefore working towards a new way of waste collection that is in line with our green identity: smarter and cleaner collection: waste separation starting from school year 2022-2023.

In a circular economy there is no waste and products and raw materials are reused over and over again. The waste is the new raw material. That is why, in addition to paper, we are now also going to separate PMD (plastic packaging, metal cans and drink cartons), residual waste and Swill (organic waste) at our schools. In order to be able to collect this waste separately, different bins are needed to collect the different types of waste. We get so-called environmental streets for this. These are several garbage bins next to each other for the various types of waste. The recycling centers are placed at strategic places in the school. This means that all current waste bins will disappear.

A ‘waste team’ is formed per location to supervise the implementation of waste collection. With the pay-off ‘From mess to beautiful, can you help?’ we want to encourage everyone in the school to separate waste as well as possible, so that it can be used as a new raw material. In this way we can really make a difference together.
