Zero waste in my kot
Purpose of the project
The Zero Waste in My Kot project is one of the five Sustainable Campus projects of the Green Office ULiège. Its aim is to raise students' awareness of the impact of waste production and to encourage them to reduce it on a daily basis.
On average, 550 kg of waste are collected in Wallonia per person per year. In Belgium, 35% of household waste is recycled and 20% is composted. The rest is incinerated or landfilled.
