James City Introduces New Litter League Program

Sign up here for our free newsletter that tells you about the newest stories, three mornings each week.

Litter is more than just an eyesore; it affects our quality of life. It is expensive to clean up, decreases property values (more than 7%), pollutes local waterways (ending up in the ocean), attracts pests which spread disease, and harms wildlife through ingestion and entrapment.

James City County has created the Litter League Kit Program. The Litter League helps individuals, families, organizations, and businesses perform cleanups in local areas by providing groups with everything needed to perform a cleanup: 5–gallon bucket, litter grabbers, safety vests, gloves, trash bags, and an informational binder with a step-by-step guide on how to plan a cleanup, learning materials and suggested reading list.

One-time cleanup kits are available for check out for one week at a time at both the Williamsburg Regional and James City County Library locations. Williamsburg Regional Library Online – Search “Litter Cleanup Kits”.

Kits may be picked up at the General Services Administrative Building on 107 Tewning Rd.
