Food Waste Collection Programme

IFT has introduced the “Food Waste Decomposer” in February 2011. All the food waste can be completely eliminated and broken down into organic compost in less than 24 hours. Thus it could help reducing our daily waste output and the load of Macau incinerator. The organic compost will be diluted by lime until it reaches the PH neutral level and it will be applied to enrich our gardening soil.

  • Please always bear in mind green life is starting by conservation. We are highly advise to take serving sizes sufficient to our individual needs to avoid wastage!

Recycle Programme

Different recycle programmes are taking place at IFT, including paper, aluminum cans, plastic bottles, ink cartridge, waste oil, food waste, banner, furniture and electrical appliances. Paper, aluminum cans, plastic bottles, ink cartridge and waste oil will be passed to the environmental recycling company for further handling; while the food waste collected will be recycled through our food waste decomposer and decompose to be organic fertilizer which will be used to enrich our own gardening soil afterwards. The used banner after campus activities will also be recycled to be recycled bags. Some wearing out furniture and electrical appliances at the Pousada guestrooms will be used in student hostels instead of disposal.

Glass Bottles Recycling Programme

Disposal of glass waste at landfills does not only consume our dwindling landfill space, it is also a waste of valauble natural resources. IAM has been working with DSPA to launch various voluntary programmes in specific sector to collect glass bottles for recycling. Residents are encouraged to participate in this programme too. Glass bottles collected will be delivered to a dedicated glass recycling contractor for crushing into glass sand, for the production of concrete paving blocks.

Battery Recycling Programme

A lot of electrical products contain batteries as a power supply in our daily life. However, an environmental impact will be occurred if the exhausted batteries do not dispose properly. As they contain materials that can be hazardous to people and the environment. They also contain valuable materials that can be recycle used in other products, such as magnetic alloy and stainless steel. Recycle deposited batteries is the best solution at this moment.

The deposited batteries are collected on a periodic basis, sorted according to battery type, stored and exported for recycling.
