The Office of Waste Management (OWM) is responsible for trash collection at trash enclosures, pads or loading docks outside of all “campus”* buildings. Generally, custodians are the link between the waste generator and OWM services. Academic custodians, Residence Hall custodians and Dining Commons custodians collect trash (and recycling or food waste) for placement at the above enclosures and loading docks.
For the following living areas, students must bring their waste outside to the trash collection area adjacent to the building: Central, Northeast, Lincoln and North Village. In all other Residence Halls, students drop off waste materials at the “trash” rooms located on each floor.
