Green Cleaning

UWSP upgraded to the Diversey chemical dispensing system that combines floor, glass, disinfectant and general cleaners into one system. Chemicals are concentrated to reduce packaging and solid waste disposal. This system is utilized at all of our dining locations. It requires significantly less storage, handling, and packaging.

All of our Diversey chemicals are green certified with the exception of our disinfectant. With the product in concentration form we are not creating as much plastic container waste like we did with ready to use containers. The Diversey product is an excellent cleaner and fewer products are used to obtain the same results. Other Initiatives pertaining to cleaning on campus include recycled trash liners, reusable mop heads, and reducing aerosols.
