Disposal of waste and hazardous materials Walailak University
Walailak University has set to operate the green university project according to the 5th strategy, the green university city of happiness has the policy to increase efficiency in waste management and implement various waste management projects to reduce the amount of waste increasing from various activities within Walailak University, including the project to reduce the amount of waste to landfill to zero by 2030, as well as to apply the principles of Circular Economy or circular economy to be used as a guideline for further comprehensive waste management.
The university has a waste incinerator, which is used as a process to create the transformation of waste into electricity that can be recycled into the system and there are banks that transform waste into waste that add value to waste Eco-Block has been established to bring recycled waste to be converted to create value and reduce the cost of constructing a walkway within the university’s garden. However, Walailak University recognizes that waste management is an issue that all sectors need to cooperate with Walailak University. Therefore, encourages various sectors to be aware of waste problems and have knowledge and understanding of waste management processes. including the collection, sorting of waste, and recycling of waste. to reduce the amount of waste and make the most of resources.
Implementation of a waste management policy that covers both hazardous and non-hazardous waste disposal to use resources for maximum benefit throughout the value chain while minimizing the amount of waste by using the principles Reduce (reducing use or using as little as necessary), reuse, recycle (processing for reuse), and renewable (use of renewable resources), and reject (refusal to use substances that are not environmentally friendly). In addition, Walailak University also establishes a tracking management system and prevents impact on the community society, and the environment from sorting, storage, transportation, and disposal. Furthermore, Walailak University also focuses on the efficient use of resources and minimizing the amount of waste generation to reduce the burden of disposal of waste arising from the operation of the university.
The waste management approached to combine the Circular Economy Concept with business operations to reduce the consumption of resources reduce the amount of waste and reduce environmental impacts throughout the value chain. Using resources efficiently alternative fuel from waste zero landfill waste by managing waste according to the 3Rs principle, this is a concept and practice guideline for the cost-effective use of existing resources that can help reduce the amount of waste to be less by reducing the use reuse and recycling of waste (Reduce Reuse and Recycle: 3Rs).
