Resource Management

Recycling\Waste Management

The Building Maintenance Office is responsible for the collection and disposal of waste generated on campus. The College's waste management strategy aims to reduce as far as possible the amount of waste going to landfill.

Onsite waste management where collection and sorting of recyclable materials has reduced landfill-destined waste by an estimated 60% forms an important part of this strategy.

Energy Management

This section of the Buildings Maintenance Office website will inform the campus community of energy usage and conservation measures on campus.
