For several years, various measures have been implemented at CERN to optimise recycling and meet the following related challenges:

At CERN, we have:
- Regular collections for small amounts of incinerable waste and paper/cardboard in waste containers situaed near building entrances (click here for details);
- Collections on request for greater volumes of waste requiring skips (click here for details).
We also have:
- Regular scrap wood collections on the Swiss and French parts of the site (off-cuts not exceeding 1m3 can be deposited near the incinerable waste and paper/cardboard containers).

|Reminder: Worksite supervisors must be able to guarantee the traceability after removal of waste produced on his worksite, and for that reason, an EDH shipping request must be submitted every time waste is to be transported to a sorting centre or recycling plant.|
