SALT LAKE CITY — Salt Lake Community College
has made the decision to reduce the frequency of office cleaning from daily to weekly, according to Globe
, Salt Lake Community College''s Newsweekly.
The reduction in custodial services is due to recent budget cuts, the story stated.
Full- and part-time custodians working day and mixed shifts will be moved to night shifts; the thinking is that custodians can more easily clean empty buildings, thus increasing the efficiency of the department, the story noted.
An e-mail from the Facilities Department said: "We are aware of SLCC''s need to become more sustainable while rising to the budget challenges we are being faced with. We feel that we have a way to meet both of these objectives."
Common areas such as the Student Center and classrooms will still be cleaned daily; offices that generate an excess of waste will be provided with additional waste baskets to compensate for the reduced cleaning frequency, the story added.
