Environmental Initiatives

Going Green
The Environmental Quality Department is always looking for ways in which the Village can become more green. The Village is involved in the following to be more green:
  • Participates in the Clean Air Counts program
  • Endorses the Metropolitan Mayors Caucus Greenest Region Compact
  • Supports the adoption of environmental programs that address environmental issues of global importance at the local level
  • Promote the annual World Wildlife Fund’s Earth Hour event
Reuse-a-Shoe Program
SWALCO’s Reuse-a-Shoe program is one of the most popular, community-wide initiatives designed to raise awareness on the concept of sustainability. Through this program, athletic programs are used to create playground material.
