Adopt a Drain in your neighborhood
One of the best ways to help combat the problem of litter in our waterways is to consume less. Everyday decisions can help combat unnecessary packaging, reducing the risk of plastics and litter ending up in the gutter. Opt for dining in rather than carrying out food, bring your own containers to restaurants for leftovers, carry a reusable water bottle, and don’t forget a fabric bag for grocery shopping.
You can help keep your neighborhood litter-free year-round by adopting a storm drain. Start by searching for your address on adopt-a-drain.org to find a drain near you. By committing just 15 minutes of your time twice a month to sweep up leaves and trash, you can help keep your neighborhood clean and our waterways healthy. Across the metro, volunteers have kept over 140,000 lbs of debris out of lakes and streams
