What does a Stanislaus Green Team Assessment Entail? Our Stanislaus Green REACON (Recycling Energy Air Conservation) Team meets twice a month at various places of businesses through out Stanislaus County. Every other Tuesday morning monthly, assessments are scheduled at 9:00, 10:00 and 11:00. The team will walk around each business facility and assess it from an environmental perspective with a focus on how to save the business money through conservation. Each business is given a binder with a 7 page checklist. The checklist is sectioned out into recycling & solid waste, water conservation, pollution, energy and transportation. The standards are derived from California’s state mandated regulation standards for businesses. Upon completion of the checklist each business is recognized as being green certified by the Modesto Chamber of Commerce and the Stanislaus Green Team. They will receive a certification plaque and a green ribbon cutting recognition to celebrate their accomplishment.
