New buildings or faculties in UTHM have their own septic duct that connects between the buildings to the Sewerage Treat Plant. The duct was installed underground. Waste then going through the duct before accumulated in one tank. It then treated before dispose. UTHM hired one company to manage the sewerage and septic tank.
For the old buildings in UTHM, there is no duct that connects the building to the plant, so the company hired to manage the sewerage will come and collect the waste separately then dump for disposal purpose outside the UTHM.
