Get Caught in the Act, Help Clean Up Litter in Virginia

During the month of March, Keep Virginia Beautiful is hosting a month of beautiful acts across Virginia. As part of this state-wide effort, the Albemarle County Solid Waste Alternatives Committee (SWAAC) would like to invite all to join. Grab a bag, take a walk, and pick up some litter. When you’re finished, take a minute to let us know where (include the nearest street address or zip code) and how much litter you picked up. This will help us to better understand and address litter in our area!
