Due to the University’s response to COVID-19 concerns, as of March 30, 2020 the Environmental Management Department has adjusted its normal work location assignments for much of its staff. These reassignments may cause a slight deviation in normal response times for waste pick-up requests made through the E-Trax system or those that are called or emailed into the department.

We hope that this period of staff reassignment is short-lived but if you have any questions concerning a waste pick up request during this time, please call 859-323-5005 or 859-257-3129.

EQMC Building

We’re excited to report that the new addition to the facilities of the Environmental Management Dept. are now complete. The expanded space for administration and professional staff offices as well as the upgrade in conference meeting space are significant and very welcomed upgrades to our physical resources at the Environmental Quality Management Center which we will ensure are reflected in meeting our environmental protection service provider role. We are also excited with the fast approaching roll-out of our new website. With its new functionality and all new content we have worked hard to make it a dynamic and timely service‐provider which again we will ensure is an extension of the kind of dedicated professional attention each member of the department strives each day to provide to those we serve.
