Did you know only 5% of Dutch schools separate plastic waste? Today, school waste is regarded as industrial waste making it expensive to separate and recycle. That's why I'm campaigning for school waste to be reclassified as household waste.
We are excited to share that beginning January 1, 2023, The Waste Fund will be introducing a free plastic collection service for primary schools. Schools have until May 18, 2022 to register for this service. We call on all primary schools to register today at Afvalgoedgeregeld.nl!
The Waste Fund will also be offering free plastic collection to universities, associations and museums, but they must register by May 18th!
