The Environmental Services division’s primary responsibility is to provide a clean working environment for students, staff, faculty and visitors to the Tarleton State University campus. Students, staff and faculty are encouraged to cooperate in maintaining building cleanliness and strongly urges patrons to participate in the following:

  • Dispose of trash, waste, confidential materials, and recycled products in containers provided in offices and common areas.
  • Call the Environmental main office to report spills or leaks. (We ask that the reporting individual cover the area with paper towels to absorb the spill and to identify these areas to fellow employees to avoid any subsequent safety issues.)
  • Blood spills and human waste incidents should be reported to Environmental Services immediately. Do not attempt to clean these areas, but notify fellow employees to avoid the area.
  • Clear desks, shelving, tables, countertops and window areas of all objects to insure thorough cleaning.
  • Do not use floor areas for storage for items such as paper products, equipment or personal items.
  • Do not use trash cans as a storage area for papers, folders or umbrellas. Identify boxes and papers that are to be discarded.
  • Please remember, Environmental personnel are not permitted to perform personal or unauthorized services such as running errands, making coffee, delivery services, etc.
