The Trash Summit


More Than 10 Years of Impact

Since 2006, the Alice Ferguson Foundation’s Trash Summit has brought together elected officials, business leaders, community activists, and municipal managers to explore local and regional policies and efforts to reduce trash in communities along the Potomac River Watershed, particularly the Anacostia River.
