Other Requirements

Recycling - The University requires recycling of paper, bottles (glass and plastic), cans (aluminum and metal), and corrugated cardboard. Contact Facilities Management at 301.405.7086 to request recycling information about containers, container locations, and pickup schedules.

Access and Egress - When planning for vending placement, access to the space for machine installation and product delivery must be considered such as ramp, elevator, or loading dock.

Governing codes and standards ensuring environmental health and safety must be in compliance with safety rules and guidelines. The Department of Environmental Safety, Sustainability & Risk is responsible for the Policy on Means of Egress, which ensures that there is an adequate and safe means to exit any building and that emergency personnel may enter the building in case of an emergency. Corridors and other means of egress must be free of obstructions, and items may not block exit doors or restrict the width of any portion of a corridor to less than 44 inches.
