As the temperatures start to tick up with the onset of summer, people will be heading outside in greater numbers to enjoy all the beautiful spots the Inland region has to offer.
Guess what that means? It means there will likely be an increase of litter as folks visit parks, rivers, lakes or the local mountains. Some people leave behind trash on purpose (Boo!) while others drop things without realizing it and hopefully most people dispose of trash in a proper receptacle.
If we all do our part then we can help reduce the amount of unsightly trash which adversely impacts the health of our watersheds and is unattractive and unhealthy.
Here are some ways you can help keep our communities, open space areas and wildlands less trashy.
- Identify a trash receptacle when you are out and about.
- Bring a trash bag with you so you can dispose of any litter in case there are no trash bins available.
- If you have a dog, bring bags to pick up after your furry friend.
- If you see trash, pick it up and throw it away.
