Building Services Efforts
The Building Services Department has implemented programs to minimize the use of janitorial chemicals across campus, and to reduce the energy used during the cleaning process.
Detergents and other janitorial chemicals are dispensed to cleaning teams each day in packets just sufficient for their assignments.
The University uses a Team Cleaning strategy that sends a team to specific areas to perform all janitorial tasks at one time, which is designed to minimize after hour use of building lighting, heating and cooling.
All paper towels use at the University have high recycled content paper.
The University currently has an experimental program being implemented at all gym and recreation facilities to replace all cleaners, sanitizers, and waxes with certified Green-seal, biodegradable products. If this program proves successful, all buildings will be switched to Green-seal janitorial products.
