Sciences Po recycles and sorts with 3 types of bin: blue, yellow and grey. This is thanks to the initiative of the Sciences Po Environnement student association, which has been working closely with the institution’s teams.

How does recycling and sorting work?

  • The blue bins are for recycling paper (70% of Science Po’s waste), newspapers, magazines, brochures, books, envelopes, bound documents, full notebook binders, and small cardboard packaging;
  • The yellow bins are for recycling plastic bottles and metal cans;
  • The grey bins are for all other waste: food packaging, tissues, plastic and cardboard cups, bubble wrap, soiled paper and food waste.

The Sciences Po cleaning company is involved in this programme, with a complete system for sorting and recycling.

Take a look at the guide "Good practices and good habits" (PDF, 112 Ko)", the user guide to recycling. It contains all the details.
