Custodial Services - Facilities Department

The custodial care of all academic, administrative and athletic areas is handled by the Facilities Department Custodial Staff. We feel that our students, faculty, staff and our guests deserve the cleanest possible environment. Our staff follows policies and procedures that assure compliance with campus standards, California Health and Safety Codes, California Code of Regulations, OSHA standards and Alameda County ordinances.

Academic Areas

Classrooms and labs are mopped and vacuumed weekly. Common areas are also cleaned and supplied daily. Floor finishing and carpet cleaning in all areas are done as needed.

Administrative Areas

Offices are vacuumed weekly, or as needed. Desks, file cabinets and bookcases are dusted weekly. Floor care is performed on an annual basis, usually during the summer months, or as needed.

Athletic Areas

The fieldhouse, gymnasium and pool area is maintained on a daily basis. Locker rooms and rest rooms are cleaned and sanitized daily. Gym floor care is performed on an yearly basis, usually during summer months.


We recycle beverage containers, mixed paper and corrugated cardboard. This is due to a collaborative effort within the campus community. Materials such as beverage containers and office paper may be placed in the same containers marked "recycle" which are placed throughout campus. We are currently using a recycler that allows commingled recyclable materials.
