"Surge Purge" Days start now!

These dumpsters want your Surge Purge trash!

Monday, Aug. 6, is the kick-off for "Surge Purge" Days on Clifton Campus-- a time to get rid of clutter, waste, junk, and other messy stuff that sullies our campus environment.

Aug. 6, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., is "Shred Day" for paper waste.

  • A shred truck will be in Lot D near the B-Wing exit from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Aug. 6 only.
  • Pick-up rolling dumpsters in the hall near the Mail Room. Load the papers you wish to shred, then take the dumpster to the shred truck for disposal.
  • Please don't bring paper waste from home... the College is paying a fee for the shredding service.
  • If you're uncertain which documents should be retained, refer to Section 11 of the College Operations Manual (on the College intranet).

Aug. 6 and 7 are "E-waste Days"

  • E-waste includes computers, electronic devices, monitors, keyboards, light bulbs, batteries, and other electronics.
  • Bring e-waste to dumpsters in Lot D anytime on Aug. 6 or 7.
  • It's OK to bring e-waste from home and dispose it on campus, since the College gets a small rebate for these materials.
  • If you have a large amount of E-waste, contact Facilities at 569-1559 to arrange for assistance.

Aug. 6 through 9 are "Metal/Broken Furniture Waste Days"

  • Bring metal and broken furniture items to designated dumpsters in Lot D anytime on Aug. 6 through 9.
  • You can bring broken metal items from home to dispose. The College will get a small rebate for these materials.
  • If you have a large amount of waste and need assistance, contact Facilities at 569-1559 prior to the waste disposal days. Provide a description of items to be disposed of and the location of the items.

Aug. 6 through 9 are "Chemical Waste Days"

  • Bring chemical waste to the Ludlow Garage (caged-in area on first level) anytime on Aug. 6 through 9; however, you must call Police Dispatch at 569-1558 to arrange for a police officer to meet you.
