Healthy Environment Initiative

Operations Ombudsmen conduct routine litter and sign violation patrols to supplement the efforts of other departments with litter clean ups throughout the city. The Blue Bag Program is an initiative of the Operations Department to identify and decrease the accumulation of litter. It utilizes individuals from the Successful Outcomes After Release (SOAR) Program for litter clean ups to reduce the negative environmental and aesthetical impacts that litter can have on the city.
