The university employs various methods to enhance consumption and production efficiency across the campus. Alongside several new policies aligned with this objective, the university has established an efficient system for recycling furniture, paper, and electronic waste and the medical and chemical waste both locally on campus and through third-party collaborations. both locally on campus and through third-party collaborations.
In the academic year 2021/2022, a substantial portion of furniture waste was locally recycled at the university, transforming wooden and metal furniture waste into new items for offices, lecture halls, and laboratories. Since 2016/2017, the university has recycled over 2900 chairs, desks, cupboards, and more. Additionally, the university has a paper collection system for recycling documents generated from exams, reports, and other activities. Over the past four years, approximately 15 tons of office papers have been collected and recycled. Electronic equipment, car spare parts, and other hardware are also collected and resold to third parties for recycling and reconditioning, contributing to waste reduction.
To mitigate the consumption of fresh water from underground sources, the university employs two large sewerage tanks to collect rainwater, thereby increasing water storage capacity. The combined capacity of these tanks now exceeds 1000 m3. The harvested rainwater is repurposed for irrigation, and outdoor green areas have been equipped with artificial grass to minimize water consumption.
The disposal of chemicals is completely disposed of in waste bottles labeled with the type of material and the appropriate labeling, and then contacting the Ministry of the Environment to be disposed of permanently in a good way for sale.
With regard to what is related to the departure, it is not disposed of and its purpose is:
If it is related to microorganisms, it is sterilized using an autoclave after dedicating it to its own harvest. If it is waste from the animal’s home, it is disposed of in a special incinerator. Attached are examples of the Ministry of Environment's correspondence letters, pictures of microbiology waste bags, and the College of Pharmacy's crisis management and emergency evacuation plan.
