The Plastic Recycling Research Lab is located in the basement (B2) of NYUAD campus. To visit the Plastic Lab you have to find your way to the East Cafeteria (also called D2 Dining Hall) following the signs. Take the lift that is right from the entrance of the cafeteria, to the lowest level (B2 basement). You are almost there! Exiting the glass door in front of the lift you just have to take five more turns to the left. The Plastic Lab is located at the Waste Management Site on the underground Ring Road. The entrance is hidden in the corner. Also check out this drawing.
