TU has implemented a self-service waste model to refocus housekeeper resources on health and safety-related cleaning rather than trash collection.

Our self-service waste model supports the proper separation and disposal of campus waste streams. Self-service will be implemented in additional campus buildings as renovations and upgrades allow.
