Waste and Recycling

The University produced 1,321 tonnes of waste in 2020-21, a 62.7 per cent decrease on 2019-20. A total of 477 tonnes of waste was recycled. The reduced staff and student load on campus due to COVID-19 resulted in a significant reduction in waste generation from the campuses. The amount of waste recycled increased from 33 per cent in 2019-20 to 36 per cent of total waste generated in 2020-21.
