3. Waste Disposal Policy: Landfill
Jesselton University College is dedicated to environmental conservation and sustainability. As part of our commitment, we have developed a Waste Disposal - Landfill Policy to measure and manage the amount of waste sent to landfills and promote recycling efforts. This policy has been implemented since 2021 to minimize our environmental impact and foster a culture of responsible waste management.
Our Waste Disposal - Landfill Policy aims to reduce the amount of waste sent to landfills by prioritizing recycling initiatives and waste reduction practices. We strive to create a sustainable campus environment where waste is managed responsibly and resources are conserved for future generations.
Waste Segregation: Jesselton University College will implement a waste segregation system that encourages staff and students to separate recyclable materials from general waste. Clear and accessible waste bins will be provided across the campus.
Recycling Programs: We will establish and support recycling programs for various materials, including paper, plastics, glass, and metals. These initiatives will be promoted to raise awareness and encourage active participation.
Waste Measurement and Reporting: Our institution will implement waste measurement procedures to track the amount of waste generated and the proportion sent to landfills versus recycling centres. Regular reports will be generated to assess our progress in waste reduction.
Waste Reduction Initiatives: Jesselton University College will actively explore and implement waste reduction strategies, such as promoting digital documentation, encouraging reusable materials, and collaborating with suppliers to minimize packaging waste.
Education and Engagement: We will conduct educational campaigns to inform our campus community about the importance of waste reduction and recycling. Workshops and events will be organized to inspire behavioural changes and foster a culture of environmental responsibility.
- Appoint responsible individuals to oversee waste management initiatives and regularly assess progress.
- Collaborate with waste management partners to ensure the proper disposal and recycling of collected materials.
- Periodically review and update the policy to align with emerging best practices and environmental regulations.
Jesselton University College is committed to promoting sustainable waste disposal practices and actively reducing the amount of waste sent to landfills. Through the implementation of our Waste Disposal - Landfill Policy, we seek to create a greener campus environment and inspire positive change in waste management behaviors. By working together, we can make a significant impact in protecting the environment for future generations.
