Waste and Recycling

Waste and Recycling as a team went above and beyond ensuring trash/recycling collection sites for housing move out were clean, orderly, and all containers emptied in a timely manner, despite the fact that they did not have help from an outside vendor as they have in previous years. We are very proud of this team for helping make student housing move-out a success!

Dan Davenport

Dan Davenport with the Electric Shop went above and beyond when installing a data jack in the Law Building. While he was there, the building occupants noticed an issue with their printers. Although the issue was unrelated to Dan’s work, he took the time to explain what the issue was not, which ultimately helped IT resolve the issue. Everyone at the Law Building appreciated the quick response so they could move on to other possible solutions to the problem. Thank you for your attentiveness, Dan!

DDC and Steamfitters

Special thanks to the DDC and the Steamfitters for their work on an issue in the Biotron Laboratory. “Everyone was so nice, fixed the problem and most importantly, took the time to explain what happened and how to check certain things to troubleshoot if it happens again.” We appreciate your consideration and care!
