Litter Free School Zone program launched in Delaware

Posted

A new statewide program to encourage students to keep their communities litter-free was announced by Gov. John Carney on Sept. 22.

The Litter Free School Zones Program was launched with Keep Delaware Beautiful and the Delaware Department of Transportation in coordination with the Keep DE Litter Free initiative.

It urges students to keep their school grounds free of litter and raise public awareness about littering. Every school in Delaware is encouraged to join the movement to keep the state clean.

To become a participant, schools are required to complete at least two litter cleanups. Students are asked to track the types of trash they collect to determine future messaging. Once each school completes the cleanups, the Transportation Department will provide a sign declaring the school a Litter Free School Zone.
