School Litter Audits

Our litter audit program allows students to take an active role in being responsible for the cleanliness of their own school yard. Conducting a litter audit expands student knowledge about litter and its consequences on the environment.

The program consists of the following:

  • An in-class litter awareness question period and safety talk.

  • Schoolyard cleanup period (including the completion of an audit).

  • Categorizing collected waste into recycling, compost, and garbage.

  • Evaluation and discussion period following the clean up.

The total anticipated time to complete all the activities is about 1.5 hours, but can be modified to suit class time restrictions. We provide all the necessary clean-up implements including pickers, bags, and recording sheets.
