Each building has General Maintenance Workers (GMWs) assigned to do daily cleaning, trash removal and recycling. GMWs are responsible for special event arrangements, clearing of snow near buildings, light bulb replacement and periodic special cleaning such as washing windows, waxing floors and shampooing carpets. If you encounter a bathroom, hallway, parking ramp or grounds area that is less than satisfactory, please submit a service request.
Recycling is encouraged. Single-stream recycling receptacles for aluminum, trash and paper are provided across campus. Any paper without food contamination may be placed unsorted in appropriate containers. Provisions are also made to recycle many other materials, byproducts and waste on campus. This voluntary system of recycling and trash reduction is dependent on your efforts and encouragement of others. Recycling saves the University disposal costs, reduces the need for new resources, and reduces impact on the environment.
Confidential materials should not be placed in regular trash or recycling containers. Shred containers are provided throughout campus for disposal of confidential materials.
