Litter eradication projects involve the cleanup and prevention of litter at public spaces. There are two main subcategories of litter eradication:
- Litter Cleanups
- Litter Free Events
Litter Clean Up
Litter cleanups are the collection of existing trash at or along public spaces. This includes: parks, roads and other public spaces.
Litter Free Events
Litter free events are the prevention of litter at events open to the public.
