    We are now cleaning floors using Orbio Technology. This technology allows us to clean floors without the use of chemicals, Just water and only a small amount of it!  

     
     
     
    RECYCLING NEWS
    Our "Green Team" approach wins DEP award! That was in 2008, today we are still going strong.
    Mansfield's district wide recycling saves thousands of dollars and continues to divert recyclable material from the waste stream. Cans, bottles, paper, cardboard, computers, light bulbs, metal, ridged plastic, ink cartridges, and more are all recycled. For more recycling information click the recycle link at the left.
     
     
     
    GREEN CLEANING
    Since 2005 the Mansfield Township School District has been following Green Cleaning procedures. This year we introduced a new microfiber cleaning system that uses less water while improving the cleaning level . All of our paper products (towels and tissue) are Green Seal certified made of 100% recycled material. In addition we have been gradually installing Xlerator hand driers into the restrooms. These hand driers help us to reduce our paper usage and do an excellent job drying hands.
     
    MICROFIBER CLEANING SYSTEMS
    To further promote green cleaning we have switched from conventional cleaning methods to microfiber cleaning systems. The microfiber systems clean better, use less water, reduce airborne particulates, and are easier to use.
     
     
    ENERGY CONSERVATION
    Our energy conservation practices have greatly reduced district wide energy consumption.  In 2004 we started benchmarking our utility use. We have cut our electrical consumption district wide by 18% since 2004 without factoring in the solar. We added solar panels at the Hydock school in 2010. See the power by clicking the solar link.
