Bhairab Ganguly College has undertaken the following measures for the management of waste:
Solid waste management:
Green coloured dustbins for the biodegradable products or wet products and blue for the non-biodegradable or dry products are placed at different strategic points in the college campus. The non-biodegradable wastes are collected and disposed through municipality vans as solid waste.
Liquid waste management:
- The liquid waste is managed through a rainwater harvesting project entitled “Megh Kalas”. The water collected from the rooftop is reused and connected through pipelines with the toilets of the college.
- The non-repairable items procured from electrical gadgets and computers are accumulated in a room and cleared twice a year by approved vendors and sold out to the Hardware companies.
Waste recycling system:
- The college periodically disposes of the accumulated waste materials by transposing them in municipality vans.
Hazardous chemicals and radioactive waste management:
- Live microbial wastes are killed by autoclaving before disposing as degradable waste. However, Bhairab Ganguly college does not use any radioactive waste.
