WINNIPEG, Manitoba – The 28,000-student University of Manitoba has entered a three-year contract with Swish Maintenance and Enviro-Solutions to provide all cleaning chemicals used on campus. These include hand soap, trash liners, floor and carpet care products, and dilution systems.
The university, whose facilities occupy approximately 6 million square feet of space, has committed to using cleaning chemicals and hand soap that has been certified as "environmentally preferable" by The Environment Choice Program or Green Seal.
Before settling on its two suppliers, the university spent a year testing products from four manufacturers on cost, performance and ease of use. Both Swish Maintenance and Enviro-Solutions are located in Peterborough, Ontario.
