Trash Free Potomac Watershed Initiative

We seek to address the trash problem with a comprehensive, watershed-wide approach that:

  • Challenges regional leaders to work collaboratively
  • Brings together key stakeholders to research and explore alternative, cost-effective solutions that have long term impact
  • Improves general education and awareness in order to shift individual behaviors

We take a five-pronged approach to address the trash problem comprehensively. Click on the puzzle pieces below to learn more about each facet of the Trash Free Potomac Watershed Initiative.
