What happens to our waste?

16.11.2021 | DIT Public Relations

"Into the bin - and then what?" What actually happens to our rubbish? This question will be explored at the next Children's University at the Deggendorf Institute of Technology (DIT).

Plastic in the environment and in the oceans - rubbish is one of the major global problems. But there are solutions. Miriam Augustin from the Zweckverband Abfallwirtschaft (ZAW) Donau-Wald comes to the DIT Kinderuni for this topic. She explains what happens to our waste and why it is so important to separate properly. But what goes into which bin? Which waste can be recycled at all and what is made from it? A quiz will show who is already a real recycling professional. Nevertheless, the best waste is that which is not produced in the first place. Waste prevention is the order of the day. Miriam Augustin will give her young listeners important tips on how to do this - in keeping with the European Week of Waste Prevention, which is taking place at the same time. At the end, the children can ask the expert questions.

The children's university is organised by the MINT team of the Deggendorf Institute of Technology. Children’s university is currently offered in German only.
