CleanScapes Achieves First Ever 5-Star Evergreen Fleet Rating


Local waste hauler earned the distinction with superior fleet management

SEATTLE, WA – December 12, 2012 – CleanScapes was recognized for their pioneering fleet management efforts with the first ever 5-star rating from Evergreen Fleets.  CleanScapes received this distinction at a ceremony last night held by Western Washington Clean Cities.

CleanScapes became the first fleet to achieve a 5‐starrating by demonstrating superior best practices in “green” fleet management, increasing its use of alternative fuels such as compressed natural gas and biodiesel, and thereby reducing the greenhouse gas emissions of their fleet.

“CleanScapes is honored to achieve the first ever five-star rating for our ground-breaking efforts to create a greener, more sustainable fleet,” said Chris Martin, CleanScapes’ founder and president.  “We are pleased to be able partner with communities who make this possible by sharing our commitment to reducing emissions through innovations in our fleet.”

Evergreen Fleets is a voluntary, tiered certification program that recognizes fleets for making smart, environmentally responsible choices that save fuel, improve operational efficiencies, and reduce air emissions. Evergreen Fleets is the first green fleet certification program of its kind in the nation, and was created by the Puget Sound Clean Air Agency and Western Washington Clean Cities in collaboration with a consortium of public fleet managers.

CleanScapes is the trusted partner for communities seeking to enhance residential & commercial vitality by providing innovative streetscape maintenance, recycling & solid waste services. CleanScapes was founded in Seattle, Washington in 1997, and provides sustainable solid waste and recycling collection service to residents and businesses in Des Moines, Shoreline, Seattle, Issaquah, and beginning on January 2, 2013, Carnation.
