St. George's College Aruvithura is actively addressing the importance of water conservation in the face of potential water scarcity due to climate change. Despite receiving ample rainfall in the stream and its surrounding areas over the years, the college recognizes the need to implement water conservation practices to ensure a sustainable water supply for the future. Consequently, the college has undertaken significant efforts to effectively implement water conservation measures. One of the primary methods employed is the scientific harvesting of rainwater from the expansive college campus. To facilitate this, a rainwater harvesting tank with a storage capacity of about 1 lakh liters has been installed at the rear of the self-finance block.

Water Conservation   
To make the most of the excess runoff water collected from the rainwater harvesting tanks, the college has strategically directed it towards groundwater level recharging pits. This process effectively replenishes the groundwater levels, contributing to the long-term sustainability of water resources. Two borewells have been strategically positioned near the college's new library block and auditorium, ensuring a reliable supply of fresh water for various water needs on the campus.

Waste management plays a vital role in upholding a healthy and clean environment, and  College has prioritized this by implementing an efficient waste management system. The college campus is equipped with three incinerators, installed in the aided section and self-financing block, which effectively assist in waste management. To maintain a clean campus environment, the college ensures regular waste segregation. Garbage collected from various departments, offices, and premises undergoes proper sorting to separate different types of waste. This crucial step ensures that waste is appropriately managed and disposed off. The extracted waste from the segregation process is then subjected to scientific disposal methods, utilizing the three incinerators available on the campus. These incinerators aid in the safe and controlled combustion of waste, minimizing environmental pollution and potential health hazards associated with improper waste disposal.


St. George's College maintains an organic and green environment within its premises through a well-functioning system. As a part of this system, an earthworm bio compost pit efficiently manages, and processes organic waste produced by various departments and campus areas. The compost pit, located behind the college's main building, utilizes earthworms to decompose the organic waste, resulting in nutrient-rich vermicompost.


College implements a comprehensive waste management system that emphasizes the principles of Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle.
