College cleaning contract reaches 15 year milestone

Cambridge Regional College is a challenging place to keep clean, but LCC Support Services has handled its cleaning contract for 15 years - and enjoys the task. LCC even won a Golden Service Award for its achievements on this site.

Sue Reynolds, LCC's site manager and her team of 26, look after the exterior and all the student indoor areas. These include the restaurant and the construction class where cement is walked out into the college. Other types of waste come from the hairdressing, carpentry, art, makeup, and welding areas. Sue Reynolds, said: “It's like the Forth Bridge - as soon as we have cleaned areas we look back and they are messed up again.”

The busiest time is not, however, when the students are resident, it is from mid-July to September when all the high reach work, carpet and upholstery cleaning, and builders cleans are carried out. Reynolds continued: “When winter term starts the place is spotless and we are proud of our achievements. Next term the college becomes non-smoking which is good news, but it will probably result in more gum or crisp bags!”
