THE UNIVERSITY will segregate its waste as its contribution to solving Metro Manila’s garbage problem. The move is in connection with the University’s “Clean and Green” program launched last Nov. 29.

According to Office for Student Affairs director Evelyn Songco, the University would soon release guidelines for the project’s implementation.

“We already have the guidelines. But we have yet to release them to the deans and departments,” she said.

To acquaint Thomasians on waste management, Songco said the University had conducted symposia on the subject.

Songco added that the program is in line with the smoke-free University campaign, which started last June.

“It (smoke-free campaign) is just a beginning and it will be a continuing process, she said.

“We have to make people and understand that we have to maintain a clean environment and contribute to its conservation. We expect that the effect of these programs will be long-ranged, and so the process is also long-ranged,” she said.
