Recycling paper

recycling paper

CSE is a low paper consumption organization and only a minimal quantity of paper is used each day. While most of the information is exchanged electronically, some amount of printing on fresh paper does take place. However, all fresh A4 printed sheets are meticulously recycled. They are once again used for making photocopies.

Treating solid waste

CSE started this practice to showcase successful decentralised management of the solid waste and also to reduce the discharge of the solid waste from its own campus. Solid waste composting is a process to prepare compost from the biodegradable organic material which can be used as soil conditioner or organic fertilizer.

Two types of wastes generated in the CSE: 

  1. From leftover cooked food (collected from canteen) 

  2. From uncooked raw vegetable waste ( also known as kitchen waste) and dry leaves
