Lost & Found Policies
February 9, 2021
We’ve all been finishing up laundry and realize there is one missing sock. Talk about frustrating. What I don’t understand is, how can you leave the gym and realize you lost your keys and not go back to find them?
Today’s topic is a hot one – do you have a Lost & Found Policy?
Short answer, if you don’t have a policy maybe now is the time to make one for your facility. We took the liberty of breaking down a memo and log from one of our clubs and generalized it for you to make it your own at your facility. Here is an example Lost & Found Policy and Item Log: Lost and Found Policy and Log.
Here is what our clubs said:
- Hygiene items not claimed are tossed at end of each day
- Clothing and general items not claimed usually end up getting donated
- One facility has a rummage sale each year and donates the money (LOVE this!)
- High Value items are logged, secured and kept indefinitely
