The Litter Index is a national initiative of Keep America Beautiful that provides a starting point for the litter prevention process. The Litter Index is conducted by volunteer teams who rank areas of town on a cleanliness scale of one to four. Keep America Beautiful guidelines signify that a “1″ means “virtually no litter can be observed,” while a designation of “4″ indicates that “major illegal dumpsites are present, requiring equipment or extra manpower for removal.” The lower the number the lower the amount of litter in the area.
The 2011 Litter Index is scheduled for July 19th. We need volunteers for this program! Please call 851-5185 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
