Our mission is to provide quality, safe and healthy learning environments using a fully integrated green cleaning program. Service excellence is our priority.

Integrated Waste Management is responsible for the continuous and ongoing development of FIU's recycling program and collection of solid waste at the Modesto Maidique, Biscayne Bay, and Engineering campuses as well as the Wolfsonian Museum.

  • Recycling 

    The Facilities Operations department’s recycling program is executed by the Custodial Services department for all academic, administrative, and public spaces in assigned buildings at the Modesto Maidique, Biscayne Bay, and Engineering campuses, as well as the Wolfsonian Museum.

    Many other units play a vital role in the university’s recycling and waste reduction strategies. Though not all are listed, here are a few examples: the Utilities department plays a critical role in energy reduction, the Plumbing department plays a critical role in water consumption reduction, the Procurement Services department plays a critical role in purchasing recycled materials for the university, the Office of University Sustainability plays a critical role in creating awareness and initiating programs, and Administration plays a critical role in supporting the university’s sustainability efforts. Again, these are only a few examples of the many contributing units.

    The University has a well-established recycling program which exceeds the minimum standards as required by the State of Florida under Florida Statute 403.714 and The Florida Solid Waste Management Act of 1988.

    Our single stream recycling program began in June 2009. The program has seen a steady growth since. Recycled tons chart
