From Monday 17 January 2011, AIT rolls out new waste management arrangements institute-wide.
New recycling infrastructure will facilitate the collection of four types of waste:
- Tea, coffee, soft drinks, etc. into a liquid waste pod.
- Food, tea bags, apple cores, banana skins, etc. into food waste.
- Newspapers, empty cans, cartons, plastic bottles, sweet wrappers, etc. into dry recyclable.
- Contaminated waste, e.g. floor sweepings, breakages, nasal tissues, burst pen, into landfill.
In our college, as well as our homes, we should only produce a limited amount of waste which is bound for landfill.
Volunteers will be around during Green Week to encourage and educate students and staff on how to use the new receptacles.
