Waste management


Waste separation is highly promoted at HZ. We strive to encourage our students and employees to follow the recycling procedures of Vlissingen and Middelburg. The waste management separation team also strives to promote awareness on our current initiatives to all students and employees of HZ to reduce the amount of waste that is produced on campus.

From 2017, The HZ Green Office has begun implementing a waste separation management system on the APV campus in Vlissingen. The initiative was part of the 4th year course, Sustainable Business. The waste separation initiative was then followed up by another group of students, and it was eventually adopted by the HZ Green Office. The initiative is also supported by the municipality of Vlissingen. The waste separation initiative at the APV campus in Vlissingen helps the municipality reach their objective that is to reduce the amount of waste produced from 400kg per person to 100 kilograms per person, as is demanded by European Legislation. 

The linkage between the waste management activities and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that will transform our world:

15sdg.jpg 15. Life on Land -Protect, restore, and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss.

Exclamation mark.pngWe are currently looking for student ambassadors that would like to raise awareness about the importance of waste separation at the HZ campus in Vlissingen and APV student housing in Vlissingen. Please free to contact us if you are interested or if you just want to share your ideas on how our current waste separation initiatives can be improved. Student ambassadors can link their activities to HZ personality credits.
