Green Initiatives

The College has constituted an “Environment Protection and Nature Cell”. The Cell is in charge of campus beautification, maintaining a ‘Green Campus’ and of taking initiatives to keep the campus eco-friendly.

The Institution holds environmental ethics in high regard and wishes to achieve through all its practices a holistic response to the problem of environmental degradation.

Under the circumstances, propaganda towards a general awareness about nature is not sufficient, but extensive environment related activities are needed. In addition, the college must play a role in generating environmental consciousness in the locality.

Tree Plantation

  • Tree Plantation programme is held annually by the NSS Unit. The faculty, the staff members and the students participate in this ‘Vanamahotsava’ programme in collaboration with the Forest department of the district. Additionally, the Department of Botany also maintains a Medicinal Plant Garden in the college.

Hazardous waste management

  • At the institutional level, hazardous waste is primarily generated in the laboratories of the department of Chemistry and biological sciences. However earnest care is taken to minimize the production of hazardous waste by recycling, re-using and/or recovering the waste.
  • Apart from these, we have specially constructed a Waste Accumulation Area (WAA) outside the Department of Chemistry to dispose off the waste.


Solid Waste Management (Vermicomposting method)

  • Non-hazardous wastes, like dead plants and other bio-degradable waste, are collected in a chamber for pre-decomposition and the partially decomposed material is underwent through vermicomposting in the vats and re-cycled as fertilizers for the garden. The College maintains a system of segregating the bio-degradable waste from the non-bio-degradable one by installing separate dustbins in several strategic locations.
  • Some dismantled building materials or canteen waste is collected in the Vat for clearance by the local municipality. Therefore, proposed practices address issues such as sustainability, cleaner production, health, safety, and environmental protection.

E-waste management

The different departments of the college take the responsibility to identify all un-useable/irreparable, rejected/discarded electrical and electronic products as e-waste products. These are kept in a separate, isolated, unexposed area, to prevent accidental breakage. In order to minimize such waste and to save resources, we always encourage recycling of all end-of-life useful products and valuable material from e-waste. Vendors are appointed to recycle usable parts of discarded computer sets. Buy-back policy is also employed to manage the waste caused by appliances like photocopiers, AC machine, as an effective mode. Burning of rubber and plastic in the campus and throwing e-waste in municipal vats are strictly prohibited in the college. Care is taken so that toxic material present in e-waste, like batteries, compressors of refrigerators, and CRT monitors do not come in contact with the natural elements.
