Litter Free, Inc.
Litter Free plans to resume group cleanup efforts in 2021 and will meet virtually on Wednesday, February 3, at Noon on Zoom to select a Community Wide Cleanup date and plan for the Youth Litter Patrol.
If you would like to join us, please send an email to email@example.com to get included in the call. Until then, please clean up safely on your own. Every action counts! Dispose of litter properly and always recycle where possible.
Litter Free, Inc. is a nonprofit organization formed in 1985 for the express purpose of creating a cleaner environment and encouraging recycling within the City and Borough of Juneau. Our marine environment, with its many streams, rivers, lakes and salt waterways, is very important to us. Marine litter is just as unacceptable as any other.
Through the sponsorship of an annual spring cleanup, with community-wide support, we target public and commercial common use areas. Throughout the remaining year we organize smaller cleanups using clubs or organizations to perform the labor. The clubs or organizations performing the small cleanups may receive payment for their services from Litter Free, Inc.
Along with these continuing tasks, we offer public education to all members of the community, with an emphasis on educating younger school children, to aid in developing good litter free habits and an awareness of a participation in recycling.
Financial support is sought from the City and Borough of Juneau and a variety of organizations and businesses.
We are striving for a clean and healthy environment throughout our beautiful and unique surroundings. This, being Litter Free, Inc.’s main objective, not only makes Juneau a better place to live, but provides a better capital city for all Alaskans.
