Abstract

This paper examines the effectiveness and management of Higher Education Institutions’ recycling programmes to reduce daily waste generation. The Environmental Secretariat of the University Malaya (UMCARES) and Pusat Kitar Semula Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (PKS-UKM) were selected. Data collection was conducted through interview and observation methods. Several questions will be addressed, including goals and purpose, background of establishment, data collection, financial supports, problems and challenges, facilities and storage, number of participation, operation and management flow, etc. Data were analysed using tabular method. Findings indicate that dual-stream waste containers are relevant to apply to Higher Education Institutions. This is because of the containers’ low costs and easy management. Additionally, to operate a permanent recycling centre in Higher Education Institutions is too costly and challenging to sustain. In conclusion, UMCARES and PKS-UKM are good role models to other Higher Education Institutions by showing good impacts from recycling management in campus.
