The Yorkville Chamber Green Committee will award a Green Business Designation to qualifying Chamber member businesses. A vinyl cling decal will be given to qualifying businesses to display, serving to acknowledge the sustainable efforts and green practices of the business.
The Green Committee offers assistance to all who seek this designation. A representative can help you through the process. Typically, a ten minute conversation is enough to gather the needed information.
