Get Involved

The Regional Litter Prevention Campaign allows communities and jurisdiction to build awareness of residents and local businesses to the harmful nature of litter, which will help to drive behavior change among litterers in their area. The end goal of the Campaign is to create a lasting reduction of litter in the Potomac Water by educating and inspiring a positive change in littering behavior. Since litter is mobile, In order to achieve this goal, we are looking for new jurisdictions and communities to implement this Campaign so that the message has widespread impact.

The Campaign is designed to be easily adopted at both the jurisdictional and grassroots, community levels so as to have the broadest influence.
