P2AD is Partnering with EARTH’s 911

Earth’s 911 is a free, national 24-hour environmental hotline and website, 1-800-CLEANUP and www.1800cleanup.org. The Earth’s 911 mission is to empower people of all ages with geographically-specific environmental data and information, thereby enabling citizens to protect the environmental in their own backyard. This nationwide system operates through a single toll-free number and a single website, as listed above. By entering their five-digit zip code, callers can access several sections of specialized environmental information, from the user’s nearest recycling or household hazardous waste facility/program to the latest volunteer opportunity. The system is state-of-the-art, fun, and interactive. Dubbed “Earth’s 911” by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, this service is provided via a public and private sector partnership between federal, state, and local government agencies, nonprofit organizations, and private sector businesses. Partners include the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the National Governor’s Association, Bank of America, CircleK/Union 76, Ford, Home Depot, Microsoft, Sprint, and dozens of others in the public and private sectors.
