BMICH, Sri Lanka’s iconic landmark, recently organized an awareness programme on industrial waste management for its staff and tenants in order to maximize its contribution to the wellbeing of society by following effective and recommended processes for the disposal of different types of waste generated during day to day operations. The programme was conducted in conjunction with the Ministry of Megapolis & Western Province Development.
“BMICH hosts a multiple number of tenants at its premises and also is the host for many local and international events which attracts thousands of visitors to its premises on a daily basis. This awareness programme is the start of an initiative to implement a more efficient and effective process for waste management” said Sunil Dissanayake-Chief Executive, BMICH.
The Industrial Waste Management Awareness Programme that was conducted with the assistance of an expert from the Ministry of Megapolis & Western Province Development discussed ways and means of sorting waste under institutional level, further segregation of waste for the recycling industry, how to use bio-degradable waste as compost and the ways and means of implementing a total waste minimization program.
