2016 Spring Cleanup Launches March 28

Are surplus equipment, used furniture, trash, and recyclables stacking up around your office? The annual Spring Cleanup kicks off Monday, March 28, giving campus departments a chance to tidy up.

cleanupFacilities Services and UT Warehousing are dedicating resources to support the cleanup again this year to make it easier to move items out of buildings. Staff from Facilities Services will go building by building to help simplify the process. Computer and laboratory equipment, furniture, office supplies, paper files, and more can be recycled, discarded, or sent to UT Warehousing.

The cleanup will begin with Art and Architecture, Perkins Hall, and Ferris Hall March 28–April 1, and will continue through June to include most academic buildings. During May, the cleanup will pause as Facilities Services moves into its new building. See a complete schedule here. Academic units will be reminded of their upcoming cleanup dates via e-mail, and updates and schedule reminders will also appear in Tennessee Today.

Look for signs near your building and in your office areas as your cleanup date approaches.
