Facilities Management’s Custodial Services department is responsible for the daily cleaning of University academic, administrative, and residential buildings. Custodial Services also provides cleaning services in support of special university events and emergent needs, such as floods and biohazard cleanups.
Administrative buildings are cleaned Monday through Friday. Through our green cleaning program, we implement cleaning procedures and schedules that are safe for the community and environment. We are committed to professional excellence and pride in the service that we provide to Clark students, staff and guests.
Introducing Tiny Trash
As part of Clark’s continuing effort to reduce waste, we are providing faculty and staff a Tiny Trash container that will hook onto your desk-side recycling bin. Recyclable items (all paper plus cardboard, aluminum cans, plastic and glass containers) can be put together in your desk-side recycling bin – easy! Please empty containers first to keep the recycling dry and clean. Non-recyclable trash (food scraps, dirty paper items, plastic bags, wrap & wrappers, Styrofoam) go in your Tiny Trash container, or alternatively, be deposited in common area waste bins.
Each office or department will also be provided with large communal trash and recycling bins, and you will be responsible for emptying your desk-side recycling bin and your Tiny Trash container into these shared containers. Custodial Services will continue to remove waste from the large bins as scheduled.
