Green Initiatives

Rochester’s Green Team, developed to update and expand environmental compliance policy and coordinate cross-departmental efforts, continues the City's tradition of outstanding environmental stewardship.

These efforts include the addition of alternative fuel vehicles in the City fleet; the Clean Sweep program, which has brought out more than 10,000 volunteers who have collected thousands of tons of debris; and the long-running "Flower City Looking Good" series of events to promote interest in the beauty and sustainability of our natural environment and the restoration of brownfield properties.
