Green thinking- sorting the waste

There are four different trash bins in the Competition Centre with the appropriate signs. We kindly ask the competitors to follow the signs and separate the waste into the correct bins.

There are four kind of waste:

Paper and cartons - every kind of printed paper, paper cartons, newspapers and other paper (except dirty cardboard platter (disposable plates), household paper) - collected paper will be recycled and we will help save some trees by doing that.
Plastic drinking cups in refreshment controls will also be recycled. NB!Please be aware that only water cups are deposited in these bins, not even cups which have been used for sports drinks.

Returnable bottles- will be brought to wending maschines. The returns will be used to cover the costs of sorting waste.
Recycable materials (paper, plastic cups and bottles) will be collected in transparent bags.
Mixed waste - all other kinds of waste, which are not collected separately, go to mixed waste bin (incl. food waste, used disposable tableware, map plastic bags etc.). Mixed waste will be collected in a black bin.
