The wastes generated (chemicals, biological) from most of the Divisions of the faculty are being disposed by the process of deep burial method. Biomedical wastes are generated on daily basis at our Referral hospital of Veterinary Clinical Complex. The wastes are collected in different coloured plastic dustbins and then disposed of by deep burial method. However, one incinerator has been proposed at the new post-mortem hall which will be ready in the future.
