Common environmental issues
Read more about how to sort waste properly. According to national acts and municipal regulations, we are obligated to sort waste according to our established procedure, and we are constantly working towards satisfactory waste management within the Ull certificate. Help us by informing colleagues, students, external guests and other visitors to Ull about our procedures for waste – together, we can make things better.
Office recycling bins
The small bags for food waste have been removed from the individual recycling bins in offices. This means that these bins can now only be used for recyclable paper and combustible waste. The paper compartment should be emptied in the bigger recycling bins found in e.g. copier rooms. The compartment for combustible waste will be emptied by cleaning staff – however, if there is food waste in the bin, they will not empty it. Leave any food waste in one of the dedicated bins found in lunch rooms and at coffee stations/coffee places.
When procuring framework agreements for IT equipment, we apply the highest environmental requirements possible. The standard computers offered today fulfil those requirements.
Written recommendations for the life span of IT equipment is not a suitable option. Instead, contact the Division of IT who will make suggestions based on functionality and security. They will never suggest replacing IT equipment if this is not justified.
Changing rooms for cyclists, Ulls hus
Minutes from the building council meeting, 15 February 2016: "After receiving the proposal and a cost estimate for building a common changing room in the basement of Ulls hus, the administrative heads and heads of department decided not to approve this project. This concludes the work of Service Ull, those who had proposed a changing room with clothes lockers and drying cupboards have been informed."
Environmentally friendly containers for take-aways from Ulls restaurang
The plastic containers used for take-aways are made of recycled plastic. Together with Ulls restaurang, we are looking into different ways of reducing our environmental impact. If you are having a salad for lunch, the Amigo shop in Ulls hus offers a salad bar where you can compose your own salad in a container made of compostable material and which can be sorted as food waste. If you are going straight to the lunch room, perhaps you do not need to plastic lid at all?
