The Green Business Program staff also verifies that applicants are fully in compliance with all local regulations by contracting the City's Source Control Manager, Recycling Coordinator, and the Air Resources Board. The certified businesses set an excellent example for other businesses. In Watsonville, the program has developed strong interest therefore resulting in a growing number of applicants.
