Our annual Great Islands Clean-Up events are always a great success! In 2015 Orcas Islanders picked up more than one ton of litter in just a few hours and managed to sort and recycle 320 pounds of it! Amazing job!
Lopez and San Juan Islands also participated in the clean-up day and collectively, with Orcas, yielded 6,172 pounds of litter! 629 pounds of that litter was recycled, too!
The islands are one of the last few places where it is not a common sight to see litter on the road sides, but unfortunately that seems to be changing with each passing year. Remember to do your part all year long to keep litter off the roads, and get involved next year during the annual Great Islands Clean-Up.
