We are committed to continuous improvement by decreasing the production of waste. As identified in UOW Environmental Management Plan, our aims are to:
- Continually reduce solid waste to landfill per Equivalent Full-time Student each year
- Increase recycling rate to 66% of total waste by 2016
- Divert 66% of organic waste from landfill by 2016
- Work towards zero waste to landfill
A Waste Action Plan has been developed that identifies activities that are planned to assist us to achieve these aims.
