Hi

For House Keeping that you only decide .You want to zip the unused files ,which are generated ,using scripts through cron.

Basically it is each user's job to do housekeeping.  It is your job to make more disk space available or add quotas.  And monitor the usage.

(Any core files taking up space in these directories?)

find /home -type f -name "core*"

Housekeeping.... First consider using cron to run a few scripts to check for file system usage and send you an email or text message to alert you before things get to 100%.  80 or 90 % usage are common trigger points. Maybe higher if you have big file systems.  If you happen to have other tools like OpenView Operations Manager, you can use them to monitor critical values in the server like file system space. Nightly scripts to remove core files are a common practice too.  You can go to the /home directory and run "du -sk *" to find out who is/are the major offenders and make them clean things up.
