The first "Zero-Waste Campus" contest among Iranian universities
The collection, separation and processing of waste is a big challenge in Iranian Universities. Public awareness and teaching about these issues to students and universities staff is one of the most important actions which is usually neglected.
For the first time, the contest of “Zero-Waste University” is going to hold in the Amirkabir University of Technology. The main purpose of this completion is to increase the student's awareness about the waste and the importance of separation at the source. In this competition, the students should form their teams, and then, they should collect the solid wastes in different categories. The collected wastes will be scored based on their level of peril, importance, the value in the recycling process and etc, and they will be weighted at the end. The team with the highest score will get the 1st rank.
