Custodial Services is commited to providing the campus with:

  • ¬†Sanitation - The complete sanitation of restrooms and indoor/outdoor eating areas using disinfectants and environmentally safe products.
  • Floor care - The Custodial Services team maintains clean and attractive floors by stripping, waxing, carpet extraction, sealing interior concrete floors, finishing wood floors and grout cleaning.
  • General cleaning - General cleaning of classrooms, offices, hallways, restrooms, kitchenettes, outside tables, windows and furniture is accomplished through benchmarked cleaning frequencies and schedules as outlined by APPA and ISSA cleaning standards.
  • Safety and Sustainability - In addition to New Employee Safety Orientation training, Custodial Services employees are trained to comply with today's environmental mandates and green cleaning procedures. The Custodial Services team uses Green Seal certified or equivalent products in its cleaning operations.

Waste and Recycling Services

The campus contracts with Southland Disposal to process consolidated waste which is transferred to a materials reclamation facility. The mixed solid waste stream is then separated into various recyclable materials through a combination of manual and mechanical sorting. The sorted recyclable materials undergo further processing required to meet a zero percent waste goal. The final step of the process includes taking all excess, non-recyclable material to a waste-to-energy plant. This process eliminates all waste produced by the campus from entering landfills.
