As of May 15, 2015, faculty, staff and students in office settings collect their own recyclables in one bin, trash in another, and empty them to a central waste station within their department or building. Laboratories, classrooms, and contracted spaces are cleaned by Facilities Management.
If you have questions about custodial tasks, frequencies or services, please contact your custodial supervisor or Chris Stevens, x7387, or click here for our UMD tasks summary.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you do not have a mini trash bin, or if you have recommendations on additions or relocation of central trash/recycling containers within office suites or hallways.
Custodial Services continues to assess the waste streams removed from campus, and we hope to achieve an increase beyond the current campus recycling rate of only 50%. We continue to work on making the recycling, compost and trash system easier to understand. At the same time, asking users to empty their own trash increases the consciousness of what we throw away every day, and how much of it can actually be recycled or composted.
