    BIDs Lead the Way on Greening

    Many of the BIDs have introduced initiatives to help the environment, including public recycling, ecodistricts, electronic recycling programs and a range of planting and maintenance services:

    • The Capitol Hill BID, the DowntownDC BID and the Golden Triangle BID have installed public recycling cans.
    • The Mount Vernon Triangle BID has a biodiversity initiative to encourage bees, birds and other wildlife to the area.
    • The Capitol Riverfront BID programs and maintains the 5.5 acre Yards Park, which has landscaped gardens, fountains, and an amazing view of the Anacostia River.
    • The Golden Triangle BID holds an annual cellphone recycling event where participants trade in old cellphones for flowers.
    • The DowntownDC BID has developed an ecodistrict, a neighborhood-wide effort to reduce energy consumption and make the area more sustainable.
    • BIDs plant flowers and trees.  Last year BIDs planted 36,000 flowering bulbs and plants.
