How important is it to your business to have a litter free environment?
Make the Clean Business commitment to take an active part in keeping your community clean!
This is a free program and together we’re looking to expand the Clean Business Program into thousands of businesses countywide!
The Clean Business Pledge
Our company pledges to protect the environment by making this Clean Business Commitment. We believe a successful business helps to keep our streets clean and litter-free for our community and the environment. We will actively work to show our environmental responsibility to our community by committing to the following objectives:
- Prioritize environmentally friendly, anti-litter practices
- Keep our business clean and free from debris by routinely sweeping the sidewalks and removing litter from our landscaping and public area surrounding our business
- Have adequate trash and recycling bins and garbage service pick-up for our business functions and customers
- Keep dumpster lids closed at all times and empty outdoor trash cans regularly
- Commit to a recycling sorting program, and separate out recyclables from the landfill trash can
- Educate our employees about proper sorting and disposal of trash and the need for a Clean Business, and assign one or more employees to sweep and pick up litter surrounding the business
- Acknowledge my participation as a Clean Business to my employees, business partners, customers, and the general public by displaying brochures, window decals, or other Clean Campaign marketing materials provided, if feasible
- Report excessive litter, lack of street sweeping, overflowing garbage cans, or other relevant trash problems to the city, town, or county, and my local Clean Program
Please read the Clean Business Program cover letter and then print and sign the Pledge (e-form coming soon!).
