EnviroStars Rating System

The EnviroStars rating system helps you communicate your commitment to environmental protection to your customers.  You can display the EnviroStars decal on your store window, use the EnviroStars logo in  your own marketing efforts and hang our certificate of recognition in your waiting room.  EnviroStars profiles businesses that have reduced hazardous waste in success stories that are distributed to local media.  In addition, advertisements in local media highlight EnviroStars businesses.

How to become an EnviroStar:

  • Call (360) 676-6724 for more information about the program.
  • To verify your waste practices and be considered for EnviroStars recognition, request an educational on-site consultation.

EnviroStars in Whatcom County is a joint effort of Whatcom County Health Department and the regional EnviroStars Cooperative.

  • You are located in Whatcom County
  • You don't generate large quantities of hazardous waste
  • You set a goal to reduce hazardous waste for the year
  • You receive a visit from EnviroStars in Whatcom County to verify that your waste is properly managed
