Request For Proposal - Janitorial and Facility Services
StopWaste is requesting proposals from janitorial companies that employ environmentally preferable “green” practices and use environmentally preferable products as part of their janitorial service. These products include those that minimize environmental impacts, toxics, pollution, and hazards to workers, and products that include recycled content, are durable and long-lasting, conserve energy and water, use agricultural fibers and residues, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, use unbleached or chlorine free manufacturing processes, and use wood from sustainably harvested forests. The Agency requires general janitorial services five days per week (Monday through Friday). The Agency also requires housekeeping and facility services, e.g. nightly kitchen duties and general handyman duties, as well as scheduled interior and exterior window washing. In addition, graffiti removal (as needed), occasional painting and emergency cleanup will also be required. The contract will commence January 1, 2023 through June 30, 2024 and may be renewed on an annual basis through June 30, 2025. The Agency encourages local small businesses with ties to the community and women- and BIPOC- owned and run entities to apply.
