4. Cleaning methods

Please pick up any plastic and paper waste, cardboard waste, empty drink cans and bottles, packaging material (styrene foam), scrap metal etc. found outside within your designated areas, and put them into waste bags (sorted into 5 categories). Items which are too big for a waste bag should be taken to waste collection point B (please see above).

5. Cleaning equipment

Cleaning equipment (waste bags, gloves etc.) should be collected on the day from the equipment staff of the finance division by the administrative staff of individual divisions and departments.

6. Other

Bicycles left without permission on campus will be removed by administrative staff on the day.  
Furthermore, due to there being a number of abandoned bicycles amongst those which have been issued faculty parking permission, on this occasion, a warning sticker will be posted on all bicycles displaying the faculty parking permission sticker. With respect to those bicycles still in use, please remove the warning sticker after the campus clean-up.
