From disposable plastic to reusable tableware

Disposable packaging pollutes the environment and depletes resources. From 1 January 2024, new legislation will apply to the use of this packaging and Single Use Plastics (SUPs) will no longer be used on the Radboud University campus. An important step is the switch from disposable packaging to reusable tableware in our catering outlets.

From now on, disposable packaging will no longer be used in the catering locations on campus for meals and snacks that are eaten or drunk on site. This is particularly evident in the Refter, het Gerecht and Gigabite. At these locations, disposable containers have been replaced by reusable tableware.

Disposable cups disappear from campus

Another disposable container commonly used on our campus is the disposable cup. Disposable cups are no longer replenished in a number of buildings and from 1 January they will disappear from campus completely. Read more about Single Use Plastics and the phasing out of disposable cups here.
