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.

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.
