Litter Free, Inc. wants you! We need your help to keep our mission going of keeping Juneau, Alaska “Litter Free!”
The annual community-wide spring clean-up of public lands, roadways, sidewalks, beaches, wetlands, and trails will be held on Saturday, April 20, 2019. Trash bag distribution sites are stationed around the community and anyone can join us in picking up trash. Local contractors volunteer their time and trucks to take the collected waste to the landfill. Last year we hauled over 30,000 pounds of trash to the landfill. We partner with many local businesses and community groups in this effort – be part of our team!
Throughout the spring, summer and fall, Litter Free coordinates a “Youth Litter Patrol.” Thanks to our major program sponsors, Alaskans for Litter Prevention and Recycling (ALPAR), Waste Management, and Logan General Tax Practice; local youth can raise funds (that you can donate) by picking up trash. Trash gets turned in for cash to fund many youth group fundraisers. Since we began tracking litter collection from this program in 1996, kids have picked up over 250,000 pounds of trash in Juneau. This win-win scenario helps youth learn the value of a hard-earned buck, allows them to see the results of their labor, and helps them reach their fundraising goals. AND – Juneau stays clean.
