Through cooperation, a sense of ownership for the program has been developed.
Purchasing decisions are discussed collaboratively with the district’s green cleaning committee. Our green cleaning team, comprised of custodians from several buildings, researches various green cleaning products and methods before making their recommendations.
Green cleaning topics and ideas are frequently discussed at head custodian meetings, vendors are welcomed to demonstrate equipment and products, and head custodians are invited to “pilot” new products and methods in their buildings.
