WATERFORD PUBLIC SCHOOLS
GREEN CLEANING PROGRAM
(CT PUBLIC ACT 09-81)
The State of Connecticut requires that each local and regional Board of Education implement a green cleaning program for all school buildings and facilities in its district.
Green cleaning means the purchase and proper use of environmentally preferable cleaning machines and products as defined by the Department of Administrative Services for all state owned buildings, schools, and facilities. DAS currently requires that environmentally preferable cleaning products be independently certified by one of two third party certified organizations: Green Seal or Eco Logic.
By July 1, 2011 no person shall use a cleaning product in a public school unless it meets the DAS standard.
