It turns out that these bottle caps are worth money, and the KNGF has already raised €40.000 by collecting them! You can help them make this number grow, while also acting sustainably.
These three collection points are part of a pilot collection project for KNGF by Green Office Utrecht. If the project proves to be successful, you can possibly expect to see more of these containers in other UU locations. Do you have any questions or comments?

So as long as I donate my bottle caps, I never have to be concerned about plastic again?
Well, not quite... Reducing and reusing should always be prioritized over recycling! Using an item and recycling it is still less sustainable than just not using that item in the first place, or reusing one you already had. At the UU, it is slowly becoming more easy to go without plastic. For example, the vending machines in university buildings no longer sell plastic water bottles, offering reusable ones instead.
