Bring your extra textiles, accessories, books and small items for recycling, as well as to find treasures left by others!  

The recycling point is open in the main lobby of the Undergraduate Centre (Otakaari 1) throughout the week 20 to 24 March 2023, according to the building's opening hours

You can also bring textiles to the removal trolley (worn out, tattered or otherwise going directly into the material recycling, not moldy or wet. Small stains don't matter). Please pack that kind of textile into a plastic bag.

Used lithium batteries and batteries have their own recycling box.  Do not bring electronics, other electrically powered goods or lead batteries to the recycling point. 

The recycling event is an event organized by the Aalto Campus Sustainability Team during the international Earth Hour week (link in Finnish), which emphasizes the future and sustainability of the entire planet. The Aalto community also participates in the Earth Hour event by turning off the lights on four campus properties on Saturday, March 25th at 20.30.
