48 Clean Ocean Businesses Honored During Pollution Prevention Week


In celebration of Pollution Prevention Week, the City of Santa Cruz recognized 48 Clean Ocean Business awardees, including 10 vehicle service facilities that have been recipients since the program began 20 years ago.

The award-winning efforts of these businesses have protected the San Lorenzo River, the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary and local creeks over five to 20 years through practices that keep pollutants away from both storm drains and the sewer system.


“We congratulate all of our Clean Ocean Businesses, with a special shout-out to our 20-year awardees. They are the pioneers who have helped to grow participation in our program that is critical for important public health issues beyond sewer system protections,” said City of Santa Cruz Environmental Compliance and Wastewater Lab Manager Akin Babatola
The 20-year Clean Ocean Business awardees are:

  • County of Santa Cruz Auto Services (Fleet)
  • Fanucci Auto Body
  • Graniterock (Fleet)
  • Legacy Automotive
  • Polar Radiator Service Inc.
  • Rusty’s Honda and Mazda Repair
  • Santa Cruz Auto Body Inc.
  • Santa Cruz High School Auto Shop
  • Scotts Body Shop
  • United Parcel Service (Fleet)

“The most gratifying part of the COB process is knowing we are doing our part and making a positive difference in maintaining a healthy environment,” said Santa Cruz High School Auto Shop Instructor Matthew Svoboda. “With commitment, dedication and intent to preserve our natural environment, our students carry this exemplary accomplishment into the future.”
