The Clean Valley Council is a non-profit organization that has served the Roanoke Valley for more than 35 years. CVC provides educational programming and citizen participation events to spread the word about litter prevention, recycling, wastestream reduction, stormwater pollution prevention and protecting our natural resources. We are the go to resource for local recycling information. CVC provides educational resources and programming for the school systems, the public and the municipalities in the cities of Roanoke and Salem, the counties of Botetourt and Roanoke and the town of Vinton. We host and sponsor several valley-wide litter cleanup events and e-waste collections each year. Our mandate is based on the Commonwealth's policy "to protect its atmosphere, lands and waters from pollution, impairment or destruction for the benefit, enjoyment and general welfare of the people of the Commonwealth."
