Campus Clean Out Day

Campus Clean Out Day

Campus Clean Out Day: Friday, June 9, 2017

Campus Clean Out Day is this Friday, June 9. This is our annual day to mobilize together to clean out storage rooms, obsolete equipment, files/records no longer needed, and general clutter and junk. Departments should plan to clean their own offices, labs and storage areas (please dress appropriately).
Lunch will be provided in the Centennial Lounge from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
If you have pens, pencils, binders, paper or other useful supplies that students or another office might want, please bring them to the Resnick Academic Achievement Center. (You may also wish to visit the Academic Achievement Center to see if anything you could use has been donated.) Drop-off and “browsing” will be available from Thursday, June 8 through the end of the month.
As you clean out your offices, don’t forget to donate any books to Margaret Ohlerich (Lane) in the CADI office, 230 Farrell Center, to help raise money for student book scholarships.
If you have questions regarding records retention, please refer to the SUNY Records Retention and Disposition Schedule. If you don’t find your answer there, contact Jan Elwell at or x4499. For bins in which to deposit sensitive documents for shredding, please contact Kathy Hibbard at or x4580.
If you will need assistance in moving larger items, please put in a Facilities Work Order as soon as possible by emailing or calling x4020.  
If you have questions regarding disposal of property, please refer to the Guidelines for Acquisition and Disposal of State Property. If you don’t find your answer there, contact Donna Ackerman at or x4025. Also contact Donna Ackerman regarding disposal of toxic or hazardous materials. With the exception of a limited number of items (e.g., computers, motor vehicles, recyclables, etc.), anything which cost less than $5,000 or has a useful life of less than two years can be disposed of with the approval of the Account Administrator for the area the equipment is located in.

Collection Points for Disposal of Property

To facilitate clean up, extra garbage cans and garbage pick-ups will be provided by custodial staff in each building. Because of the expected volume of garbage that day, please take your own items (whenever possible) to the dumpster located at the Bush Hall loading dock. Battery collection boxes will be placed in the Bush Hall garbage room by the loading dock and by the Info Desk in Farrell Center.
This violates fire code regulations.  
Zero-Sort recycling containers are located in each building. If the Zero-Sort container in your building is full, please bag it and notify Grounds at x4020. 

  • Zero-Sort accepts: Paper, Cardboard, Plastic, Glass, Metal (small items).
  • Zero-Sort does NOT accept: Styrofoam, Plastic Bags, CDs/DVDs, Paper Towels, Food Waste or Trash.
  • Metal and Wood are recycled in dumpsters located at Wall Service Complex.
