Code Compliance is working with commercial property owners and managers to bolster community pride in keeping privately owned business properties clean, safe and well-maintained. Any accumulation of trash, litter, building materials, tree limbs or debris, junk, etc. found on the grounds of property is unacceptable.

A cleaner business community supports goals of the city’s Volunteering with Keep Arlington Beautiful (KAB) initiative started by Arlington Parks and Recreation, to beautify Arlington and enhance quality of life in the community. The KAB initiative enlists the aid of volunteers to keep Arlington parks and public spaces clean and welcoming. This initiative is an affiliate of Keep America Beautiful and Keep Texas Beautiful. Learn more about volunteering with KAB to engage in cleaning, greening, and beautifying public spaces in our community.
