2010 Response to Guidelines Comments

The public comments received by November 20, 2009 on the Green Cleaning Proposed Guidelines have been reviewed. We would like to thank everyone who took the time to provide public comments.

Based on our review of all comments, the Office of General Services, in consultation with representatives from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, Department of Health, Department of Labor and State Education Department, developed groupings of similar comments, which we called categories. We then created a heading or title for each category, provided our response to that category, and attached all associated or related comments. Below you will find a Table of Contents that lists all 8 categories. Please find the category you wish to view and click on it. You will be linked to that specific category, which will be followed by the response, then by all the related comments.

Feedback from these comments was helpful in amending the final Guidelines for Green Cleaning document below where appropriate.
