About Maintenance

Welcome to the Campus Operations webpage. We are the umbrella designation for the Custodial Operations, Grounds & Landscape and Recycling departments.

The purpose of this site is to acquaint and familiarize the college community with who we are, what we do and how to contact us.​​

Custodial Operations is charged with cleaning and maintaining all District facilities; servicing rest rooms, moving furniture, and setting up tables and chairs for special events. Learn more about us by selecting the Operations Custodial link.

Grounds & Landscape is charged with cleaning and maintaining all District grounds, landscape, trees, parking lots and structures and waste removal. The Department is involved in the set up and support of outdoor Athletic Events.  All pests (insects, rodents and bird) issues are handled by the Department and the Contracts for preventative pest treatment by Licensed Professionals, is coordinated through the Grounds Supervisor.   The pickup and shredding of confidential School and Student documents is scheduled through the Grounds Department.   Learn more about us by selecting the Operations Grounds& Landscape link.

Recycling falls under the Grounds & Landscape department and is charged with diverting waste from landfills. This is accomplished through teaching the benefits of recycling and Vermicomposting. Get more information by selecting the Operations Recycling link.
