Reducing Solid Waste from Cleaning Operations

Another aspect of a green maintenance program is to reduce solid waste throughout the building, including in cleaning operations.

To reduce solid waste while cleaning, staff should:

  • Purchase chemical products and supplies in quantities that minimise the amount of packaging and container waste generated.
  • Use reusable cleaning cloths or microfiber technology, whenever practicable, in lieu of paper products. Within 2 hours of use, rinse and/or place cleaning towels, cloths, and other reusable cleaning materials in a sealable container (e.g., metal flammable rag canister, locking plastic bag, etc.) to minimise evaporation of the cleaning product. Reusable cleaning cloths or microfibers should be cleaned or laundered prior to reuse.
  • Segregate and recycle all waste items from cleaning operations, including paper, glass, plastics, cardboard, other packaging materials, empty chemical containers, and worn equipment, that are acceptable for recycling in the community.

The chapters on Resident Education and on Recycling and Special Waste Programs contain information on setting up a recycling program.

Action Items

  • Purchase products in quantities that minimise packaging and waste.
  • Use reusable cleaning cloths or microfiber instead of paper.
  • Segregate all waste from cleaning operations and dispose of properly.
