Phoenix, AZ, December 11, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Greystar Real Estate Partners announced, today, their participation in the Adopt-A-Street program. Phoenix’s Adopt-A-Street program provides businesses and concerned citizens the opportunity to adopt sections of streets in or near their communities. The purpose of the program is to reduce trash and litter resulting in the beautification of the streets and neighborhoods in Phoenix.
On Friday, December 18th at 2:30 p.m., employees from Greystar will participate in clean-up efforts including litter and trash pick-up. Greystar has adopted the area on Highland between 16th Street and 24th Street in Phoenix.
“We understand that simple actions can make a big difference in our efforts to be a more environmentally responsible organization. With our mission to serve our communities and give back it seemed only natural for Greystar to participate in Phoenix’s Adopt-A-Street Program,” said John Rials, Director of Real Estate at Greystar. “The program allows our employees to be hands on and personally involved in taking care of our local environment.”
The City of Phoenix developed the Adopt-A-Street program in 1991 in response to corporations and civic groups who were interested in keeping Phoenix thoroughfares clean and attractive.
Because of the overwhelmingly positive response to the program, it was expanded in 1992 to include individuals, families and schools. Approximately two-thirds of Phoenix's major and collector streets have been adopted. For more information on how to adopt a street, call the City of Phoenix Street Transportation Department at (602) 262-4980.
