The campus’ Spring Cleanup is in its seventh week of tidying up around campus. The twelve-week campaign is an effort to declutter academic buildings by getting rid of surplus equipment, used furniture, trash, and recyclables.
After six weeks, crews from Facilities Services have removed approximately 200 tons of surplus equipment and furniture from fourteen buildings. The first half of the cleanup also has resulted in seven tons of scrap concrete, ten tons of scrap metal, one ton of cardboard, and 120 cubic yards of construction and demolition landfill waste.
The cleanup will continue through the week of July 16, skipping the week of July 2. View the full schedule here.
If the cleanup has not made its way to your building, there are a few steps departments can take to prepare. Forms for surplus property should be submitted to UT Warehousing one week before each unit’s assigned week. Forms may be submitted to the fax number listed on the forms.
Learn more about surplus property on the UT Warehousing website. For more information on the Spring Cleanup, contact Dennis Lee at 974-7773.
