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.
The ACE mission is achieved by working with citizens, civic associations, local and national government agencies, and the business and professional community to realize 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. A volunteer citizen board directs the activities lead by ACE.
