Bursa Uludag University fulfilled the criteria of the Zero Waste project and received the Zero Waste certificate. O particular Waste Division was established to manage the recycling program within the campus. The Zero Waste Project run by the university is developing daily with many recycling programs within the campus.

 

Bursa Uludag University has an agreement with the district municipality. The district municipality arranged a local recycling company, which is licensed by the ministry, to receive the recyclables collected by the university. All students, academic and administrative staff, and visitors use recycling bins to separate organic waste and recyclables (plastic, paper, glass, aluminum, etc.). Recyclable wastes are received by the licensed company, separated, and treated into raw materials to be used.
