Today Peter from helfenstattwegwerfen.at picked up our first collected waste for recycling . Together with our colleagues from the Grebien lab we managed to gather 42kg of plastic waste!
Peter kindly took the time to explain what exactly happens to the plastic, how it is separated, washed and shredded, to be eventually re-used. We hope to motivate more and more labs @Vetmeduni and other universities in Vienna to join us for a more sustainable research!
