WASTE MANAGEMENT

Solid Waste Management:

Our institution views responsible waste management as essential to reducing its environmental footprint and to providing a safe and healthy work environment for students, staff, employees, volunteers & visitors. Waste segregation is the process of separating waste at the point of generation and keeping types of waste separate during handling, accumulation, interim storage and transportation.

Different types of Waste

1. Canteen waste/ food waste

2. Garden Waste

3. Paper waste

4. Polythene Waste

5. Biomedical waste

6. E Waste

7. Metal waste

In PMCTECH the waste generated are dry waste, wet waste, paper waste, waste water, food waste.

Waste management is the collection, transport, processing, recycling or disposal, and monitoring of waste materials. The term usually relates to materials produced by human activity, and it is generally undertaken to reduce the effects of waste on health, the environment or aesthetics and to recover resources through recycling. A range of waste management strategies is undertaken by our institution to create a safe, secure and environmentally friendly workplace. The prevention and minimization of waste material being created is an important method of waste management. PMC TECH uses additional waste reduction strategies including the reuse of products, repairing broken items instead of buying new, using reusable products. Our institution maximizes conservation of natural resources and minimizes environmental harm through an effective waste management system of recycling and reusing waste products where ever possible. We actively promotes the use of effective waste management strategies and waste is disposed of safely in a way that least harms the environment. All staff are supported and encouraged to participate in waste management. Recycling and reusing waste products, and safe disposal of waste, contributes to an effective waste management system. Reduction of Consumption All staff reduces consumption, conserve energy and reduce air pollution through strategies such as: Preventing the need to use energy – Utilizing natural light to minimize energy waste. Minimizing use – Turning off lights and equipment when not operating. – Minimizing expenditure on air conditioners. – Efficient use of water. Use of efficient equipment, lighting – Using energy efficient office equipment and power saving functions Using the most efficient lights CFLs / LEDs instead of tube lights or comparatively more energy consuming lights. Maintaining green cover – The Institute maintains its green campus. – We will be planning indigenous trees in campus area to support local biodiversity. All staff minimize waste through strategies such as: Reusing – The e-waste is reused whenever possible by repairing and brought to use. – The discarded e-waste is replaced to buy the new products which helps in saving money to great extend and also provides with safe disposal process. Waste Disposal SBPIM employees dispose of waste in accordance with the Waste Management Procedure. Dry Waste – will be collected in the dust bins meant for dry waste Wet Waste – will be collected in the common dust bins meant for wet waste This waste will be handed over to the corporation collecting vans separately.

Liquid Waste Management:

A well-constructed drainage system exists leading to the closed collection tanks. The tanks are regularly cleaned to avoid stagnation of water and the cleaning part is out sourced. We adopting dilution method, where the sewage is subjected to perfect dilution so that the dissolved oxygen in natural water decomposes the organic wastes completely, thereby reducing the turbidity. The reduction of turbidity favours easier penetration of sun light and natural ecosystem is restored.

E-Waste Management:

E – waste generated in the Institution is used for technical education purpose by keeping the hardware in laboratories for display. Our college has a “maintenance room” where all the maintenance of computers, tube lights & other electrical equipment is done. The components from the chokes of tube lights are reused in automatic street light system. Wires of the faulty tube lights are utilized for making connections. The unusable material is disposed off in an appropriate system such as disposal using scrap grinder machine and the remaining in open scrap disposal by appropriate mode. These scrap was supplied to the vendors for sale by contract.
