Describe the facilities in the Institution for the management of the following types of degradable and non-degradable waste (within 500 words)

  1. Solid waste management.
  2. Liquid waste management.
  3. Biomedical waste management.
  4. E-waste management.
  5. Waste recycling system.
  6. Hazardous chemicals and radioactive waste management.

Response: Vyasanagar Autonomous College follows standard guidelines for managing degradable and non-degradable waste.

Solid Waste Management.

Campus garbage includes paper, metals, dry leaves, wood, glass, wrappers, and canteen organic waste. Solid trash bins are strategically placed across campus. The institution has biodegradable garbage dumps. The Institute’s gardens receive nutrient-rich manure from the waste’s orderly breakdown. In addition to the Swachh Bharat initiative, clean and green activities, plastic prohibition, segregation of dry and wet waste, rainwater harvesting, and plantation programmes help keep the campus clean and green.

The Municipal Corporation manages a dumping field for residential, hostel, and campus waste. The college has dumpsters for solid waste disposal behind the stadium. Broken glass beakers, test tubes, and rubber tubes are collected from the entire campus and preserved. Vyasanagar Municipal Corporation collects and disposes of this solid garbage. 

Liquid Waste Management.

The campus uses Reverse Osmosis (R.O.) effluent for lawn watering, floor cleaning, and weekly car washing. Floor washing uses equal parts R.O. reject water and tap water. This exercise is done on alternate days with intermittent water use. This prevents floor salt buildup. This water can irrigate lawns if the TDS is below 2100 mg/l. Environmental engineering lab tests verify this parameter. Due to the absence of hazardous chemicals, the maintenance staff monitors laboratory wastewater periodically. Before discharging into the sink, chemistry and environmental engineering labs dilute and neutralise acidic waste. Rainwater collection is the most sustainable.

E-waste management.

Each department and office collect electronic debris, including CPUs, monitors, keyboards, and batteries. Then, external agencies dispose of the garbage. The institution has adhered to the regulations set forth by the Government of India regarding the e-waste (Management & Handling) Rules 2011, which were implemented on May 1, 2012.

  • Printer cartridges are commonly refilled instead of being disposed of. In cases where replenishment is unfeasible, the cartridge is sent back to the producer.
  • The surplus paper material is typically sold to external vendors facilitating its recycling process.
  • Computers deemed satisfactory regarding operational status yet considered outdated for the current system are commonly utilised for educational purposes. Likewise, computer components and peripherals are repurposed in alternative methods.
  • All electronic waste (e-waste) that is damaged or non-functional is returned to the manufacturer.
  • The vendor of new UPS batteries offers a buy-back program for exchanging old batteries at a nominal cost.

Hazardous waste management:

  • The college typically does not produce any form of dangerous waste. The institution endeavours to minimise its waste production and curtail the utilisation of plastic materials whenever feasible. 
  • The practice of segregating waste into biodegradable and non-biodegradable categories is commonly observed.
  • Implementing organic gardening techniques is a viable alternative to using pesticides and other hazardous chemicals in garden maintenance. 
  • Chemistry laboratories have exhaust fans and fume hoods to eliminate acid fumes.
  • Vermicomposting is a method to manage wet waste generated from canteens and other biodegradable waste.

Key Indicator - 7.2 Best Practices
Metric No. Metric Supporting documents/links Additional links
7.2

Describe two best practices successfully implemented by the Institution as per the NAAC format provided in the Manual.

Title: Community-based fitness and wellness programs.

Objectives

  • to enhance college inmates’ overall health and fitness levels and the surrounding community by implementing a well-designed physical fitness program.
  • The primary objective is to provide exercises that promote overall fitness across different populations.
  • Additionally, it aims to guide the essential nutrients required for optimal physical and cognitive growth and development.
  • Another goal is to educate individuals on the strategies and methods for maintaining good health.
  • Lastly, it seeks to foster physical, psychological, and social well-being.

The context of the situation is important to consider to understand the circumstances and background information surrounding the topic. In contemporary times, a significant peril has emerged that poses a substantial risk to individuals’ physical and psychological well-being. This phenomenon can be primarily attributed to the prevailing lifestyles of individuals. It is widely acknowledged that the concept of prevention is inherently superior to that of cure. The theme above has prompted the need for individuals to prioritise the upkeep of their physical fitness. Individuals with high physical fitness exhibit improved overall health and can efficiently perform routine tasks.

Additionally, it induces a state of mental relaxation. Physical fitness, yoga, and recreational activities promote healthy growth and development. The proliferation of electronic devices and mobile technology has had detrimental effects on individuals’ physical and mental well-being across all age groups, including children and older people. The college prioritises the dissemination of information regarding wellness to its faculty, students, and the wider community.

The Practice: The college offers sports and infrastructural facilities to promote the physical well-being of the campus residents and the surrounding community. The management demonstrates benevolence by granting access to the facilities to individuals in need, including members of the public, employees of the institution, and students.

Individuals from diverse age groups, including young children and older adults, use the campus facilities within the community. To alleviate employee stress within the organisation, management encourages teaching and non-teaching faculty members to engage in recreational activities within the indoor stadium during either the early morning or evening periods. The teaching and non-teaching faculty favour shuttle badminton, cricket, and tennis. Annual competitions are organised for the faculty members, culminating in awarding prizes for recognition.

Many educators frequently make use of the indoor stadium as a means to unwind and rejuvenate both their physical and mental well-being. Practices are undertaken with a sense of dedication to preserve one’s well-being and derive enjoyment from the activity. Both students and teachers engage in collaborative practice. This phenomenon elicits a sense of youthfulness and vitality among teachers while fostering positive relationships. This practice fosters a sense of student cohesion and serves as a psychological motivator. The indoor stadium is accessible to the general public, who utilise the shuttle badminton court for practice. It is primarily used during the early hours of the day.

Evidence of Success: In addition, the services of a professional coach are accessible to offer guidance and advice about badminton. The indoor stadium, volleyball court, and multipurpose hockey ground are available for tournaments organised by external agencies and associations. The college field is accessible to the general public for morning and evening strolls without any limitations. Additionally, children utilise it to engage in games of their preference, while adolescents employ it as a platform for honing their skills in football and cricket. Students from neighbouring schools utilise the volleyball and throwball courts for practice. Hostel rooms are extended to participants travelling outside the local area while organising a tournament. Hostel students enjoy engaging in recreational activities such as carom and chess during their leisure time. In addition to its primary function, the grounds are utilised by students for NCC parade practice and cross-country running practice. The students engage in self-discipline as a means of training themselves. The organisation and implementation of yoga classes is a noteworthy undertaking that merits attention. Yoga classes are held on the open platform near the NCC room, overseen by a highly skilled yoga instructor. In addition to the participation of children of campus residents, the yoga class also welcomes children and parents from the local community free of charge.

There is substantial evidence supporting the notion of success. The attainment of profound relaxation and happiness through mitigating work-related stress is a compelling testament to one’s achievement. The enjoyable and lively atmosphere fostered by the play cultivates a robust sense of camaraderie among workforce members, and the resulting joy derived from these activities enhances work productivity. A significant number of faculty members engage in regular yoga training. The staff club ensures the regular and efficient organisation of yoga classes. This development benefits faculty members who cannot allocate time for their families outside of working hours. The individuals have conveyed their contentment in participating in and experiencing the advantages of yoga and meditation. The yoga classes are well-received by children residing in the local community, who try to participate in these sessions whenever they are offered during holiday periods. The yoga class participants express increased awareness of their body postures in their professional environments and personal residences. Additionally, individuals experience an increased range of motion in their muscles and enhanced agility during their daily routines.

Challenges Encountered and Resources Needed:

The available resources are sufficient to accommodate the existing number of individuals participating in the activity. If there is an increase in the number of individuals taking part, the management is prepared to provide additional resources and amenities. One of the challenges related to employee participation is the limited ability of numerous staff members to engage in activities due to their familial obligations.

Additionally, the flexibility of working hours must be adjusted to accommodate these commitments. Despite the presence of a coach, inconsistent attendance and practice schedules prevent the provision of a professional coach daily. Children exclusively participate in yoga sessions during quarterly, half-yearly, or annual breaks.

7.2 Title: Tree Plantation in College Campus:

  • A Sustainable Approach to Environmental Conservation
  • A green campus aims to integrate environmentally friendly practices and educational initiatives to foster sustainable and ecologically conscious behaviours within the campus community.
  • To augment the tree canopy within the campus and to raise awareness among students regarding the significance of trees.
  • To preserve the imperilled environment and enhance the aesthetic quality of our existence.
  • Trees worldwide are indispensable for the livelihoods of humans and various other life forms, including animals and insects.
  • To disseminate the message of preserving trees to safeguard lives.
  • To foster an understanding among students about the significance of ecology and the natural environment, efforts are being made to raise awareness.

Trees play a crucial role in the carbon cycle by sequestering carbon dioxide and releasing oxygen, a vital element for sustaining life. The absence of oxygen, facilitated by trees, would render it impossible for any organism to survive. Trees provide many benefits to human society, including shade, medicinal resources, sustenance, fruits, furniture, and fuel. Trees play a significant role in regulating temperature and precipitation patterns, thereby contributing to the overall cooling of the environment and the occurrence of rainfall. In addition, they can bind the soil, thereby serving as a preventative measure against erosion. Given the escalating pollution levels, it is imperative to enhance environmental well-being by implementing tree-planting initiatives. Trees are pivotal in producing oxygen within the natural environment, serving as the primary source. Additionally, they contribute significantly to the mitigation of carbon dioxide levels. Given the global challenge of global warming and other environmental issues, there is a pressing need to address and mitigate these problems to facilitate recovery. Planting trees has become an imperative and highly significant facet of contemporary times.

The objective of the tree plantation activity was to disseminate the message that planting trees contribute to preserving a clean and environmentally friendly ecosystem, reducing pollution, and enhancing the verdant atmosphere. Context: Trees play an integral role in our daily existence. We must cultivate other trees and diligently attend to their well-being to preserve the equilibrium between humanity and the natural environment. To foster economic development within a nation and mitigate the adverse effects of greenhouse gas emissions on the environment, it is imperative to undertake extensive tree plantation initiatives. Given the escalating pollution levels and the urgent need for climate improvement, it is essential to prioritise enhancing the environment by strategically implementing tree-planting initiatives.

The Practice: The tree plantation program commenced with the esteemed principal’s ceremonial planting of a sapling, accompanied by a religious invocation. The event witnessed the active participation of office staff, students, and NSS volunteers. Numerous trees were successfully planted at various locations within the campus. During this event, all participants committed to assuming responsibility for enhancing the number of saplings. The faculty members effectively encouraged all students to engage in tree-planting activities by emphasising the significance of trees in preserving the natural environment. The students were subsequently designated as caretakers of individual plants, assuming responsibility for their growth and ensuring regular watering and care. Increasing the number of trees planted can serve as a modest measure in safeguarding the environment. 

Evidence of success:

  • Trees facilitate the preservation of biodiversity.
  • Trees contribute to the conservation of water resources.
  • It aids in the comprehension of tree-planting techniques.

Effective mitigation of global warming necessitates a high level of proficiency in reducing carbon emissions. The participants exhibited a high level of enthusiasm in their efforts to ensure the successful outcome of the event. The presence of a collaborative atmosphere, active sharing of ideas, and evident enthusiasm among the participants, particularly the students, was observable.

Beyond the campus environmental promotion activities:

  • The college takes care of greenery and carbon sequestration on the campus by regular maintenance under the supervision of the plantation committee. There are two committees established to maintain greenery on the campus. One is an eco-club financed by the district eco-club, and the other is the plantation committee. More tree plantation is done regularly. Annual plantation drives like “VANOMAHOSTAV” by NSS, Youth Red Cross, and faculty club are carried out on the campus towards carbon neutrality.
  • The college promotes e-office/e-circulars/notices and e-mail-based communications/ announcements to save paper. This college is the first Non-Government Aided College in Odisha that has introduced e-office, e-accounts, and e-library for smooth functioning and transparency shall prevail in our college.
  • The dead leaves and the waste paper are not allowed to be put on fire. The leaves are buried in the soil, and the forms are disposed of.
  • The college has made arrangements for the parking of the vehicles of the students and staff near the entrance. It helps in keeping the campus as much clean as possible. 
  • The campus is also smoke-free. The dead leaves and waste papers are not allowed to be put on fire. The dead leaves and waste papers are scientifically decomposed by burying them in the soil.
  • The rich, diverse environment of the campus is a living laboratory, and the biology students often use it for conducting research exercises.
  • Tree plantation drives are organised regularly to create a clean and green campus. The college’s NSS, NCC, and YRC wings take up planting saplings regularly. Plantation: Three NSS units, three NCC units, and the YRC unit have played a significant role in plantation activities in the last five years.

Challenges: There is a need to increase funds allocation for this purpose.  The necessary resources for the implementation of a tree plantation initiative include the conduction of a survey and excavation program. The three key factors that contribute to the growth and development of plants are the accessibility of water, the fertility of the soil, and the availability of sufficient sunlight. Before the day of the plantation, it was ensured that the collection of tree plants had already been completed.
