On select Saturdays in April, volunteers give their time and energy to collect trash in areas where it would have otherwise polluted the environment.
Clean Business Forum - The Clean County Commission is a cosponsor of the Virginia Peninsula Clean Business Forum. Awards are presented to four local businesses for outstanding environmental stewardship and beautification efforts.
Adopt-a-Spot - Individuals, organizations, and business may all adopt a designated area for a period of at least one year. Over that time, group members come together to keep their spot clean, litter free, and beautiful.
Recycling and litter prevention
As part of the Clean County Commission's mission to promote a healthy, beautiful environment, we are strong advocates for recycling and efficient waste management. Everyone should recycle in the interest of conserving the finite natural resources of the Earth and to protect the environment for future generations.
