It shall be the policy of Willamette University to keep all Storm Drains free of any type of refuse.

In order to protect the City of Salem and University Storm Drains, there will be no cleaning with water, or other liquids, in the area surrounding the Refuse Containers at Kaneko Commons. This means no pressure washing, hosing down, etc. Willamette University shall abide by all Federal, State and Municipal Codes and Ordinances relating to the runoff of any materials into storm drains. If area becomes contaminated, contact Facilities Management for cleanup by trained tradesperson(s).

The goal is to have 100% compliance with this policy through education of students and staff.

Through implementation of this policy Willamette University will be a positive example and play a significant role in the advancement of environmental stewardship on the Campus and in the local and greater community.
