Waste management

Separate waste collection: where to deposit it correctly?

A reorganisation of the containers for recycle waste is underway on the USI campuses: the updated maps will be published on this page as soon as it has been updated.


PET-Recycling Environmental Certification (in Italian only): in 2020 we have done our part again! A total of 576 kg of PET beverage bottles were collected on USI's West Campus Lugano (recycling approx. 21'000 bottles), saving approx. 1'728 Kg of greenhouse gas and approx. 547 L of oil.


For an increasingly efficient separate waste collection, the Azienda cantonale dei rifiuti provides several online resources (further information in the Quicklinks section).
