JUST strives to implement the 3Rs (Reduce, Reuse and Recycle) principle of recycling. To minimize environmental impact and enhance efficiency, our organization has implemented several sustainable practices. For more information. please click here.
Recycling Program for University Waste.
Recyclable Trash (plastic, paper, glass, aluminum). JUST uses trash bins with different colors allowing students and faculty to easily determine what they can
and cannot recycle. Additionally, this program allows all types recyclables
(plastic, paper, glass, aluminum) to be placed in specific container, making it
easier for the user to seperate. A private contractor collects these recyclables at regular intervals.
Recyclable Electronics. The Operation and Maintenance Unit at the university reuses the electronic parts
from the damaged devices to maintain other devices and systems. For more information, please click here.
On-Campus Water Purification and Reuse. The
operation and maintenance unit at the university collectes and purify the university’s buildings sewers, to reuse water for
agricultural purposes. For more information, click here.
Off-Campus Treated Water Collection and Reuse. To address the water scarcity issue and achieve substantial cost savings, the university has entered into a long-term agreement for the utilization of treated water resources. This arrangement involves the withdrawal of treated water from the Wadi Hassan station, situated 8 kilometers away from the campus. The station processes approximately 1000 cubic meters of reclaimed water daily, offered at a nominal cost. Additionally, the university operates its own purification plant, capable of treating another 1000 cubic meters of water daily, resulting in a combined daily capacity of 2200 cubic meters. This treated water is then directed to an artificial pond with a sizable capacity of 140,000 cubic meters before being utilized for irrigation purposes, significantly reducing the financial burden associated with using potable water for this task. This initiative not only generates substantial financial savings amounting to hundreds of thousands of dinars but also plays a pivotal role in alleviating the prevailing water crisis.

Program to Reduce the Use of Paper on Campus.
Our campus is committed to reducing paper usage through a comprehensive program aimed at modernizing our communication and administrative processes. For more information, please click here. To achieve this, was achived through the implementation of the folloiwing activities:
Electronic communication. JUST implemented a conversion program to manage most of
its communications electronically rather than using paper.
Electronic business management. Every staff
and employee have an account that he/she can use to apply services or
Electronic archiving. Paper applications to various services are not accepted.
Examples include: vacations, staff evaluation, vehicle request, marks
submission, student attendance, students advising, promotion system..
Repair and Reuse of Equipment, Furniture and Building Material.
The central supplies unit and the operation and
maintenance unit collect damaged scientific equipment, building materials
waste, and materials that can be recycled many of these items reused in another
places or maintenance projects and other items sold in a scrap yard, then the
central bids department sells these materials in a public auction to companies
and factories that recycle or reuse these materials. For more information, please click here.
is a digital platform developed by the Center of Excellence for Innovative Projects
(https://www.just.edu.jo/centers/ceip/Pages/default.aspx), with the goal of connecting waste
generators and waste collectors in the country to facilitate the buying and
selling of recyclable materials using GPS technology. This platform brings
together recycling companies, collectors, and waste generators such as homes,
shops, and businesses. It helps bridge the digital gap in the recycling sector,
enabling more efficient operations for recycling companies, reducing landfill
waste, and extending product life cycles. Users can list recyclable materials
for sale, search for specific materials, and access a wide range of resources
related to recycling and waste management, including bids, tenders, equipment,
projects, conferences, job listings, and more, all in one place. Explore the
platform at eRecycleHUB.
