Results matter. Statistically reliable tools enable us to, assess our problem areas, develop projects to address them, and show the results. The Litter Index Survey is an annual survey that helps us assess our litter and visual quality of life issues.

Recycle your dry cleaning, newspaper, bread bags, and also the plastic film on products like paper towels. Plastic bottle caps are usually recyclable along with the bottle! You can even recycle your wireless phone!
Keep your yard clean and free of things that can blow into the street and become litter. Set an example by not littering. Litter is also expensive. The annual cost of roadside litter is $115 million a year. Keep a litterbag in your car.
Forests and plants are not only essential to the health and livability of our cities and towns, they're good for our wallets! Trees that are planted within fifty feet of a residence can raise property values by 9%. You can make a difference.
