Residents must clean their rooms regularly, remove trash and maintain reasonable sanitation and safety standards. Residents are responsible for taking their personal room trash outside to the available dumpsters. Students living in the campus-owned houses (except Fayerweather), and the College Avenue Apartments are responsible for cleaning all interior areas of their residence. Residents of Greene Hall and Lincoln Hall are responsible for cleaning their bathrooms. No trash may be placed in lounges, hallways, stairwells, closets, bathrooms or on balconies. Residents must keep trash in their own rooms and empty it into designated trash receptacles outside the building. Nothing may be thrown from windows, doors and/or balconies. The bathrooms in Pixley, Turner, Gardner, Ellis, and Mundinger are cleaned daily by the College’s custodial staff.

Recycling containers are placed outside the the campus residence halls in proximity to the dumpsters. Containers are also located throughout the academic buildings. Everyone at Illinois College is encouraged to use the recycling service.
