The Green Cleaning program at Georgia Tech was established in April 2003 in the Facilities Department. The program started as a grass root effort aimed at providing an environmental preferred method to cleaning the school. Since then, Georgia Tech has distinguished itself as one of the national top public universities committed to “Greening” the cleaning of American schools.

Georgia Tech’s Green Cleaning program has received both local and national recognition.
