Environmental Policy

Cleaning Systems has made a commitment to work side by side with our professional cleaning customers to educate the consumer about the importance of cleaning in accordance with cleaning frequencies recommended by the product manufacturers.

Our company is committed to a technical education of our employees as to what the best practices are for maintaining an environmentally conscious facility.

Given that CSL is neither a manufacturer nor end user, but a distributor of products and training, it is our determination to provide an example for our clients and the industry at large, in respect to environmental responsibility. We therefore adopt the statement “First, Do No Harm” to encapsulate our philosophy and attitude, which is to educate ourselves and others of the risk of negative environmental impact.Agrecovery.jpg

Cleaning “green” puts just as much emphasis upon the process and the procedures and the
overall dedication of the cleaning technicians and the cleaning company as it does on the
cleaning solution itself.
To demonstrate this commitment Cleaning Systems plays an important role in the AgRecovery Programme.
