CleanScapes ranks #12 on list of 100 Fastest Growing Private Companies in Washington


Check out this article about our growth...

 

Year-over-year fast growth is difficult to maintain. First, to make the Puget Sound Business Journal’s list of 100 Fastest-Growing Private Companies, a company must have achieved rapid growth for three years. To repeat that performance is not an easy task. For the companies that make the list four or more years, the Business Journal acknowledges them in the Hall of Fame.

Check out this article about how we've helped clean up Pioneer Square alleys...
