The CCIA has a history of protecting the environment. Our staff can be seen throughout the county in CNG vehicles, presenting anti-litter programs, removing illegal dumps, preserving our coast lines. Volunteers are essential to help us in our commitment to the county. By participating in programs hosted by the CCIA, you too can make the difference in keeping Cumberland County clean and green.

Always looking for innovative ways to keep Cumberland County’s litter-free, the CCIA initiated the Clean Streets Program teaming volunteers with CCIA staff to remove litter from the roadways.  Clean Streets is a spin-off to the Cumberland County Housing First Program which provides assistance for the county’s chronically homeless. 

The CCIA is dedicated to the preservation of historical, cultural and natural resources of Cumberland County.  From environmentally sound best practices in daily operations to hosting county-wide annual cleanups, the CCIA stands at the forefront as a proponent for the environment locally, nationally and globally.

According to Keep America Beautiful (www.kab.org), about 85% of littering is the result of individual attitudes. We can change attitude by changing behavior.  We can change behavior through education. The CCIA is committed to anti-litter education on every level from pre-school to senior citizens to reduce litter and keep our county clean and green.
