Waste management and the environment
UOW’s Environment Policy includes a commitment to environmental protection and sustainable practices implemented through the minimisation of energy and water use, responsible management and minimisation of wastes. UOW also has a hazardous waste disposal guideline that details the management of hazardous wastes. The University focusses on the highest environmental standards in newly built infrastructure and in managing the costs of energy and transport provision. The Environmental Management Plan addresses issues such as low carbon food options, single use packaging, waste wise events and recycling infrastructure.
