Sustainable development has forced developing countries to scrutinize waste management systems, including educational institutions. In this research, a waste characterization study is conducted at Halba Elementary School.
For high-intensity facilities, a simple solid waste characterization method is proposed. In this study, a waste generation rate is estimated and the amount of solid waste is generated at school. Its variability over three different periods of the academic calendar: Day Shift, Evening Shift, and Official Exams is analyzed.
Also, recyclable protentional is evaluated. According to the study, Halba Elementary School generates an average of almost 400 kg of waste in a normal academic year. The results show that at least 81.5% of the waste generated at school can be recycled. A school-run program should be implemented to ensure sustainable waste management and responsible recycling programs.
