The Peninsula Clean Business Forum is a coalition comprised of representatives from local Clean Community Organizations. Localities include the cities of Newport News and Hampton and the counties of James City and York. The Forum's purpose is to promote environmental improvements in the business communities through litter control, recycling, and beautification. Quarterly meetings aid in educating members on techniques, programs, and resources used to enhance both the physical and visual environment and to recognize businesses who serve as examples for others.
