U.S. Communities, NLC's non-profit government purchasing cooperative recently announced that AmSan-CleanSource has been awarded the new U.S. Communities cleaning supplies contract through a competitive solicitation process conducted by lead public agency Fresno Unified School District, CA.

AmSan-CleanSource is America's leading supplier of janitorial, cleaning, and facility maintenance supply products. It is committed to delivering janitorial solutions, products and industry experts, focused on the needs of local government to create a long-term cost saving cleaning program that maintains a healthy environment while improving operational costs, productivity and human resource savings.

The new US Communities contract offers local governments a full line of certified and environmentally-preferable chemical products, tools and equipment -- certified products by independent third parties such as Green Seal, Environmental Choice, Design for the Environment and EcoLogo.

"Green" solutions can be found for products such as floor care, general purpose cleaners, industrial cleaners, restroom towels and tissue, cleaning equipment and many other categories. AmSan-CleanSource will work with local governments to develop green solutions designed to reduce the environmental impact of cleaning processes while promoting a safer and healthier indoor environment.

U.S. Communities is the only government cooperative purchasing organization founded and sponsored by NLC and National Association of Counties (NACo), Association of School Business Officials, International (ASBO), National Institute of Governmental Purchasing (NIGP) and U.S. Conference of Mayors (USCM).
