The Clark County Green Business Program (www.clarkgreenbiz.com) offers assistance and recognition to local businesses engaged in green practices.

The program recognizes environmental achievement in stormwater, hazardous materials, water and wastewater, energy, and waste and recycling.

Green Business program also provides technical support to eliminate waste and keep material out of the landfill. Since more than 30% of waste thrown away by businesses in Clark County is food scraps, there is a huge opportunity to make a positive impact by informing the business community about our food waste composting program and about resources available to reduce food waste. We also coordinate events and workshops for people to share ideas and learn about green practices.

This position is contingent on funding. Applications will be reviewed in the order in which they are received with interviews taking place until placement is filled.
