Something you should know
Our University is trying to preserve our environment. So please during your stay at our University try to follow some basic rules.
We are trying to Recycle as much as possible, so please separate your garbage and use specialy designed containers like paper, plastic, organic waste… Reuse materials, products (e.g. plastic bags, refill your bottles…) and try to Reduce the production of your waste.
In campus and other university buildings you can find „Hliníkožrout“ – in english we can call it „Alluminium eater“.
These special and nice designed boxes are only for collecting alluminium. You can recognize alluminium by this sign: ALU 41
But sometimes the sign could be missing. So recognition tips: Alluminium is grey non magnetic metal, when you fold it, it will hold the shape and it is easy to tear appart.
What you can recycle:
- packaging of chocolates
- food foils, sheets
- lids from yogurts, salads…
- drinking cans
You can help not only by collecting the alluminium from different products but also you can help with sorting out of alluminium. This event is done after big amount of alluminium is collected. People gather together and sort alluminium and non alluminium stuff, it is usually great fun and you will do something really good. We will inform you of upcoming events.
Please give your old bateries to these boxes instead to bins. Batteries are full of dangerous materials like mercury (Hg), lead (Pb) and cadmium. Therefore they belong to speciall place after you use them. Boxes are at Faculty of Science, Biology centre and Academic library.
Is possible to give your biological material to the compost and also is possible to use it for your purposes. From time to time is needed to resort the compost – come and manually mix the layers of the compost etc. You can again help in this activity.
