Seaford Yacht Club (SYC) was awarded the 2022 3rd Quarter Clean Business Award for their recycling efforts, use of native plants, and their commitment to the local environment.  Founded in 1978, SYC is dedicated to enhancing the local nautical community with social events, educational opportunities such as summer sailing programs, and green practices.  Recently, SYC planted six longleaf pine trees, which are native to Virginia and provide many benefits to the environment.  The Beautification Committee and the Virginia Peninsula Clean Business Forum congratulates SYC on this award and commends them for their efforts!

The York County Beautification Committee is a cosponsor of the Virginia Peninsula Clean Business Forum, along with Hampton, Newport News, and James City County.  Awards are presented to one local business in each of the four localities for outstanding environmental stewardship and beautification efforts on a quarterly basis.  If you have or know of a business that has adopted green initiatives or enacted environmentally friendly practices, please nominate the business to be recognized and share their story by calling 757-890-3780, or waste@yorkcounty.gov.
