This annual survey of the state of litter in our county is performed in the spring. Volunteers randomly select areas for evaluation of six to eight sites representing rural areas, urban streets, neighborhoods and/or parks. This survey is submitted to Keep America Beautiful for compilation with the other 400+ affiliates across the country for a nationwide evaluation. A numeric score is assigned and compared year to year. Problem areas identified are assigned a special team or included in one of the annual county-wide cleanups.
We need your help to implement the N.I.C.E. program in your community. Help us rid your neighborhood of unsightly litter and debris. We’ll help you get organized and get rid of abandoned cars, overgrown lots and trash. This effort takes the cooperation of several families and/or businesses in the area. Talk with your neighbors, then call us and we’ll work together to define the site to be cleaned, list the tools needed, enlist the help of local government and haulers.
