Ill. Admin. Code tit. 23, § 2800.30 - Cleaning Supply Purchases with Pre-Qualification

Current through Register Vol. 46, No. 15, April 8, 2022

a) The institutional (school) cleaning market is composed of several categories of cleaning supplies. After review and evaluation, the Council has determined that a sufficient selection of cost-competitive, effective and environmentally sensitive cleaning supplies is available in each of the following categories:
1) Bathroom Cleaners
2) Carpet Cleaners
3) General Purpose and Hard Floor Surface Cleaners
4) Glass, Window and Mirror Cleaners
5) Hand Cleaners and Hand Soaps
6) Paper Products
b) For the aforementioned cleaning supply categories, any school may be deemed in compliance with the Act if the school solely uses products that are:
1) Certified by Green Seal, 1001 Connecticut Ave., NW, Suite 827, Washington DC, 20036-5525, 202/872-6400, 202/872-4324 (fax), www.greenseal.org [File Link Not Available].
2) Certified by Environmental Choice EcoLogo Program, 107 Sparks St., 2nd Floor, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada KIA 0H3, www.ecologo.org.
3) For chemicals: Recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Design for the Environment (DfE) Formulator Program, Office of Pollution Prevention and Toxics, USEPA, 1200 Pennsylvania Ave., NW, Mail Code 7406-M, Washington DC, 20460, www.epa.gov/dfe contact.htm.
4) For paper products: In compliance with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Comprehensive Procurement Guidelines for Commercial and Industrial Sanitary Tissue ( 40 CFR 247, 2007, no later amendments or editions), www.epa.gov/cpg.htm.
c) Schools must use the supplies as intended by the manufacturer and applicable certification body. The schools must follow all manufacturer/certifier guidelines, as well as the guidelines in this Section.
d) For all chemical products, the schools must use the concentrated version, if available, and not a ready-to-use version. Consumption of cleaning products in concentrated form reduces the amount of container material, packaging and fuel used in the transport of the product. As a result, use of a concentrated product both conserves natural resources and reduces waste.
e) The Council is not proposing requirements for any supply categories not listed in subsection (a) due to the limited availability of such products, cost or questions about efficacy. The Council will continue to review other supply categories for later inclusion in this Part.
