Solid Waste Management:
Pollution from waste is aesthetically unpleasing and results in large amounts of litter in our communities which can cause health problems. Solid waste can be categorized into three types: biodegradable, non-biodegradable and hazardous waste. Bio-degradable wastes include food wastes, canteen waste, wastes from toilets etc. Non-biodegradable wastes include plastic, tins and glass bottles etc. Hazardous waste is waste that is likely to be a threat to health or the environment like cleaning chemicals, acids and laboratory chemicals. Each and every department of Shivalik College of Engineering (SCE) as well as administrative offices create some waste and dumped in small waste bin located in the department. Each building several dust bins are placed from where housekeeping staffs take the wastes. From the small bin wastes are dumped in big bin by the housekeeping staffs regularly. From the big waste bins the car from Dehradun Municipal Corporation took the solid wastes.
