Vote for a clean (minded) Council [Litter clean up advocacy]

Littering is an anti-social behavior. As much as we strive for community, litter is a problem that continues to plague our city’s business districts and neighborhoods.

Ask our council elect & candidates to:

Study and implement a variety of methods to reduce litter and discourage littering in South Burlington.

Address the litter problem in the neighborhood business districts.

File an ordinance to reduce litter and promote recycling.

Expand use of public trash and recycling bins, explore the use of cutting-edge receptacles.

Consider use of Solar trash compacting litter/recycling bins.

Promote an Adopt-A-Block year round clean-up program.

Seek business partnerships for clean community programs. Utilize Clean Up coupons, student created posters, treasure litter-golden coin hunt, public - litter bucket brigades, and install cigarette butt bins/trash and recycling bins at all retail establishments.

Collaborate with CSWD, SB Rotary, scouting troops, and schools to design Clean Up education, promotion and awareness campaigns, and clean up actions.
