Waste Management

University of Milan - The Drive for Sustainability

Waste management, for both hazardous and non-hazardous special waste – chemical, sanitary, veterinary waste – is handled pursuant to industry regulations. For its paper, plastic, and tin recycling programme, the University works in cooperation with AMSA, the government contractor handling waste collection for the Municipality of Milan, to collect recycling at university offices and other sites.

The University of Milan also collects used toner cartridges, electrical appliances, electronics, lead batteries, furniture and other oversized rubbish, and even radioactive waste (which is now generated in much smaller quantities). Collection and disposal take place pursuant to standard operating procedures which ensure both “tracking” and handling by authorised contractors.
