Litter Index Winter 2016

Another Litter Index complete!

This past weekend, March 4 and 5, staff and volunteer surveyors traveled to almost 50 sites across Maui to visually assess the amount of litter present in those areas. Huge mahalo to Enterprise Rent-A-Car Maui, Costco, CJ’s Deli & Diner, and Wailuku Coffee Company for their support of the Litter Index program and our surveyors!

The Litter Index survey is a method used by the Keep America Beautiful affiliate network (MMN is the local KAB affiliate for Maui County) to determine the state of a community’s appearance in regards to litter. Surveyors travel by van across Maui in the span of two days, visually estimating the overall presence of litter within each of Maui’s districts.

Based in part on the data collected during Litter Indexes, we can better target our education efforts and ongoing litter prevention and recycling programs where they are most needed.
