This program is how we recruit neighborhoods to get involved in our grassroots litter prevention, cleanup and beautification programs. We ask existing neighborhood associations to form C&BN sub-committees. If a neighborhood is not organized, we help them form a neighborhood association with public safety and C&BN sub-committees.
