Your participation helps promote anti-litter education in our community.
The Council regularly hosts weekday clean-up events in an effort to address some of our local litter problem areas. These events are scheduled during the monthly meetings.
Cargo Nets for Pick-up Trucks and Trailers
In order to assist residents to meet Warren County Code §102-2 “Covering of Vehicles Transporting Garbage or Trash” which requires that no vehicle shall be operated or moved on any highway unless it is constructed, maintained and loaded as to prevent its contents from dropping, sifting, leaking or otherwise escaping. The Anti-Litter Council provides Town and County residents cargo nets at no cost that can be picked up at the Warren County Government Center in the Planning Department, Suite 400. Each household is limited to one cargo net.
Community Clean-Up Supplies to Loan
To support local organizations or citizens who want to make a difference in their community. The Council loan out supplies such as bags, gloves, grabbers, safety vests and signage to make clean-up programs a successful and safe event. Contact the ALC if you would like to reserves some supplies for your next clean-up.
Youth Education Materials
The Anti-Litter Council gives out backpacks, coloring books, and stickers to school age children during various events throughout the year. These promote recycling, keeping the earth litter free, and clean water habits.
Annual Awards Program for Community and Youth Groups and School Projects
The Council has held this event for a number of years to recognize Community & Youth Service Organizations and classroom projects for Elementary, Middle and High School Students. The award winners may receive cash wards and prizes.
Parks and Recreation Trash Bins, Recycle Bins and Dog Waste Receptacles
In order to assist in keeping our local parks litter free, the Council approves grant funding towards the purchase of new receptacles. These items meet the design criteria that are required for uniformity throughout the park system.
Members of our organization are available for giving talks and presentations on recycling and litter control in the Town and County, and giving ideas on just what you can do to be a good steward of the places you live, work and play.
