​Recycling and Composting

​The KAUST campus and community will implement a comprehensive recycling and composting program that recycles paper, corrugated cardboard, glass, plastics and metals, and collects all compostable material for mulch reuse.

All residences in the Safaa Harbor District will have integral chutes on all floors for the collection of recycling and composting materials. Outdoor recycling bins will be provided in dense pedestrian areas near the city center and campus. All food waste from the KAUST campus and harbor district will be pulverized, packaged and transported by contractor vehicle to a central transfer point to be incorporated into the organic landscape mulch program.

Waste management vehicles for the KAUST campus and community​ will utilize alternative fuels that will have a zero carbon footprint.
