MCCC is Certified Green!

MCCC is excited to announce that we are now certified through the Montgomery County Green Business Certification Program. Here are just a few highlights of changes we've made to our operations:

  • Environmental policies and procedures have been created and shared with all staff.
  • All copier/printer defaults are set to print double-sided.
  • Glass pitchers will replace bottled water for meetings.
  • Reusable kitchenware has replaced disposables in the office kitchen.
  • A bin of scrap paper has been created for re-use by staff for in-house printing.
  • The coffee machine (20 cups) will be placed on a timer rather than remaining on 24 hours.
  • Signs have been posted at all light switches to remind staff to turn off when not in use.
