The Custodial Department cleans and maintains all of the academic areas on campus, which entails more than 2.9 million square feet. Each of our custodians maintains anywhere from 20K-42K square feet daily. We are not only responsible for the cleanliness and maintenance of these areas but also for the security and evening lock down. Our staff attends regularly scheduled training workshops and monthly safety meetings in order to keep them updated to the latest in equipment and cleaning materials and supplies. We currently employ 50 full time employees and 28 student custodians.
As well we are coming into our third year of our recycling program, which was implemented by our department and has been going strong. We are also looking into the future with testing new water free urinals, which would save thousands of gallons of water daily, and the latest in Dyson technology, the air blade hand dryers which would save hundreds of thousands of dollars in paper towels and remove used towels from the waste stream. We strive to find better and more efficient ways to do our jobs, conserve energy and resources, and reduce waste for the future.
The Facilities Services custodians maintain almost three million square feet of floors on campus on a daily basis.
