Abstract:

Our project is about zero waste campus, a feasibility study. Zero Waste means that all unwanted products and materials will be treated as resources that can be used again, resulting in virtually zero garbage generated on campus. This project focusses on reducing overall waste disposal as part of zero waste action plan. Waste reduction in the campus and reuse of waste like using anaerobic digester to generate biogas from campus waste are the key goals of the present study. Our aim is to achieve campus area that is clean and hygienic, and reduce the burden of solid waste in dump yards. Zero Waste Management should include discard management through recycling and composting, and also must incorporate waste reduction and environmentally preferred purchasing practices. Zero Waste means designing and managing products and processes to systematically to avoid and eliminate the volume and toxicity of waste and materials, conserve and recover all resources, and not burn or bury them.
