Otaniemi recycling center started their operation about ten years ago and has operated jointly through many associations. At the moment, the recycling center operates on the premises of the Aalto University Student Union by volunteers. The activity is based on the principle that anyone can take and donate goods that are in good condition free of charge. For example, there are “Survival Kit” packages, including pans, pots, cups and cutlery for students and exchange students who are planning to move to their own apartment.
