Mission

Arlingtonians for a Clean Environment (ACE) protects and improves water, air, and open spaces in the Arlington community and nearby areas by promoting stewardship of our natural resources and connecting all citizens to practical solutions that achieve a sustainable lifestyle. 

ACE does this by working with citizens, civic associations, local and national government agencies, and the business and professional community to achieve and maintain a clean and sustainable community. ACE provides environmental education and volunteer opportunities to Arlington County residents and is supported primarily by the Arlington County government under a grant from the Department of Environmental Services Solid Waste Division. Additional funding is secured through government and foundation grants and donations from individuals and organizations. ACE is directed by a volunteer citizen board.
