Chesterfield County provides a year-round litter collection program. Program participants include Sheriff's Department inmates, Assign-A-Highway probationers, Anti-Litter Program collection crews and Adopt-A-Spot volunteers.
Litter Volunteer Opportunities
Adopt-A-Spot: The Chesterfield County Anti-Litter Program has established the Adopt-A-Spot program to provide opportunities for community-spirited businesses, organizations, groups and individuals to enhance Chesterfield County neighborhoods by cleaning and maintaining a designated “spot”. The volunteer participants will agree to adopt a location for a minimum of one year and clean the site as frequently as participants deems necessary. The Chesterfield County Litter Program will supply garbage bags and reflective vests. This program allows groups and individuals to adopt smaller and more secure areas, as opposed to busy roadways. To participate in this worthwhile program, call (804) 748-1297.
To inquire about the above opportunities, contact Pam Cooper, Anti-Litter Program Manager, at email@example.com or (804) 748-1297.
The goal for the county’s Anti-Litter Program is to have Chesterfield County continue to be a First Choice Community!
Business Partnership Cleanup Program: (Sponsored by Chesterfield County’s Department of Economic Development and Anti-Litter Program)
Chesterfield County Anti-Litter Program is based on the belief that keeping Chesterfield County clean is profitable, creative and practical. As we progress towards our goal of educating the public of the importance of keeping the county clean, we find great value in partnering with county residents, businesses and schools that share our vision. We believe that relationships and collaboration are critical for environmental success, and will help connect you with others who can help you achieve your environmental goals.
Effective July 1, 2009, Chesterfield County Anti-Litter Program implemented a new environmental initiative entitled, “Business Partnership Cleanup Program”. This program will enhance opportunities for Chesterfield County businesses to be protectors of the environment by partnering with local residents, civic groups, churches, businesses and schools.
Through this environmental program, we will help citizens and businesses discover new ways of doing business that lead to a cleaner and greener Chesterfield County. This program will provide Chesterfield County businesses with free assistance to set and meet environmental goals, opportunities to connect with other leaders, and recognition for environmental stewardship. Partners may find operations that utilize modern environmental practices may become more cost effective, and they may become role models for their industries and communities.
The Business Partnership Cleanup Program takes a collaborative approach to balancing environmental and economic interests for your business, Chesterfield County and its citizens.
