Towards Efficient Waste Management for Campus Sustainability
The campus is a symbol of idealism, highly intelligence and is why its community should have growth mindsets that can improve environmental sustainability; which not only adapts and reacts to the pollutions but that can generate profits from it e.g. compost or fuel from the generation of food waste. It is undeniable that the general public has high expectation and trust in the capabilities of the campus community. Therefore, the campus community can be the best example of implementing an environmental sustainability agenda. In this study, composition of waste produce from faculty cafeteria was evaluated and then composting of food waste with leaves was carried out using turned-passive aerated composter. Maximum reduction of ~46% from initial mixture was obtained. Growing of jasmine tree using the compost also has been conducted successfully.
