Internal Departmental Space Cleaning

Custodial staff are cleaning internal departmental spaces (such as departmental offices, administration offices, graduate offices and teaching assistant offices) on a weekly basis.

Employees are responsible to wipe down their personal workstation (including desk surface, chair, keyboard, computer peripherals, etc.).

Individual office spaces are cleaned by custodial staff with varying frequencies depending on serviceability. Should a department or unit require a change in the service of these spaces, a service request can be made with the FMP Service Centre (613-520-3668, fmp.service.centre@carleton.ca) and FMP will review the requirements and work with the department or unit to reach a solution.

Garbage and Recycling

To improve upon Carleton’s sustainability initiatives, individual garbage and recycling containers within internal departmental spaces will no longer be emptied by custodial staff. Centralized waste collection containers are being provided in the common areas of all buildings. The centralized waste collection containers include four (4) streams; waste, paper, recycling and organics.

Employees are asked to sort and dispose of their waste in centralized containers. This initiative helps Carleton align with our Strive for Sustainability as part of the Strategic Integrated Plan.
