A true high-performing cleaning program protects the health of students and staff and reduces operating costs. Come and learn about the technology and science that have changed the face of cleaning and how you can get the most from your cleaning budget. Green cleaning is much more than just avoiding certain chemicals; it also includes new technology and equipment, structured processes and training, and an emphasis on prevention.



Andrew Ellsworth, Director, Green & Healthy Schools Academy

Paul Bertenthal, D.H. Bertenthal & Sons, Cleaning & Maintenance Supplies Vendor

Chris Reiser, South Butler County School District, Director of Buildings & Grounds
