(December 7, 2018) – Effective January 2, 2019, custodial services for the MS Building will be transferred from the UTSA Housekeeping staff to ABM, the university-contracted custodial services provider. ABM currently provides custodial services to the majority of the campus and assumes responsibility for additional buildings, such as the MS, when Facilities loses employees through normal attrition and there is insufficient UTSA staff to properly maintain the building.

Standard custodial services such as vacuuming, mopping, cleaning of restrooms and classrooms, removal of trash from classrooms and common areas, etc., will be performed by ABM. However, similar to UTSA Housekeeping services, ABM will not remove trash from offices. Employees are expected to take their personal trash to the nearest recycling and trash containers located in common areas or breakrooms in support of the University’s mini-bin program. To learn more about the University’s mini-bin program initiated in 2013, please visit the Office of Environmental Health, Safety, and Risk Management website at www.utsa.edu/safety/#/recycling/mini-bin.

ABM employees will shadow UTSA staff January 2-5, 2019 to ensure the transition is seamless to building occupants. If you have any questions about this transfer of responsibility, please contact the Facilities Service Center at 458-4262.
