Campus Etterbeek

A clean and tidy campus

The Cleaning and Waste Management staff keep the campus clean and tidy. The cleaners clean the buildings and outside areas.

You can find waste bays at various locations on campus, where there are containers for residual waste (black), PMD (blue), paper (yellow) and glass. VUB Cleaning collects them and empties them in the VUB container park. Our service also manages the VUB container parks.

We work together with experts in pest control and predators such as foxes and stone martens who love rodents.



You can contribute yourself!

Use the waste bins and ashtrays provided, sort your waste correctly (residual waste - black, plastic bottles, tins and cartons - blue, paper - yellow, glass - grey with yellow lid), wipe your feet when entering our buildings, put your bicycle in the bicycle rack, do not leave the cables of your computer on the floor and so on. The VUB Cleaning team will take care of everything else.
