Zone Maintenance Operations Policy
Zone maintenance operations at UW-Whitewater are organized into three campus zones where buildings and operations have similar core functions and hours of operation. The three campus zones include academic facilities, residence life facilities, and auxiliary facilities (University Center). Each zone has specifically assigned maintenance and custodial staff charged with providing routine services. Zone assigned maintenance staff provide first response to all customer calls regarding heating, cooling, plumbing, electrical, mechanical, custodial and minor structural problems. Each zone includes maintenance management who work collaboratively with Building Supervisors to coordinate support services for routine maintenance and projects as applicable. Maintenance management and building supervisor responsibilities are executed by the same person in some cases.
A Central Maintenance Pool, administered by Facilities Planning & Management (FP&M) through the Central Maintenance Pool and Crafts Supervisor, provides campus-wide services for maintenance, repairs and projects beyond the capacity, expertise and authority of zone maintenance teams. The Landscaping and Grounds Supervisor is also available for any maintenance needs regarding areas outside the buildings.
When a building area or room is off-line for maintenance or remodeling, zone maintenance management will work with the Building Supervisor to assure program needs are met and information is forwarded to the campus reservations system.
Please contact a Zone Maintenance Manager and/or Building and Grounds Superintendent for first response to any problems within your building by using the information below. If you have an immediate emergency in the Academic Zone and cannot reach a zone maintenance supervisor or manager, you may call 1320 at any time. To arrange for work or services, put your request on line via the FP&M web site. See Work Requests.

Building Safety and Condition Surveys
Maintenance Supervisors and their staff take part in comprehensive safety surveys and building condition tours on an on-going schedule. Each building is thoroughly inspected once every three years. These tours are carried out in conjunction with members of the Campus Safety Committee and members of administrative staff and will enable Zone Supervisors to be fully abreast of all conditions in their respective zone buildings.
Trash Collection & Recycling
The municipal vendor (John's Disposal) collects campus trash and recyclables. All items disposed of are to be properly sorted by the building occupants and placed in receptacles provided by the vendor. It is, therefore, the responsibility of individual building occupants to assure that all trash and recyclables are disposed of in the designated containers provided within each building. In addition, when hauling garbage to dumpster areas, building occupants must again assure that they use appropriate bins and break down all cardboard. The user must do all sorting at the source; it is not strictly a custodial function. If any questions arise regarding trash collection or recycling, contact your Zone Maintenance Supervisor.
Zone Supervisors will assure academic buildings are opened and secured in accordance with posted building hours.
