Disposable policy: extensions to services
NCKU has implemented the Waste Disposal and Landfill Policy to ensure its goal of responsible production and consumption being extended to outsourced services. Landfills and recycled items on campus are picked up by garbage vans and recycling trucks three times a week before they are sent to Tainan City’s Waste Incineration Plant. By implementing the policy, the amount of landfills were reduced from 488 (2018) tons to 143 tons (2020). Recycled items are sold to become public treasury of the University.
