KPB’s Litter Free School Zone To Kick Off For New School Year

The Keep PA Beautiful Litter Free School Zone Program is designed to encourage students to keep their school grounds litter-free and to raise public awareness regarding litter via a Litter Free School Zone sign to be displayed outside the school.

Students, clubs, classes, and even entire school districts can participate in the Litter Free School Zone program. Keeping their school litter-free is an easy and fun way for students to work together, learning valuable community leadership and responsibility skills while gaining a respect for the environment and the world around them.

It is also an opportunity to develop a school-wide stewardship ethic and set a community example.

The Litter Free School Zone program strives to resolve the issue of littering in two ways:

-- Cleanup: Remove existing and deposited litter as soon as possible after it appears, so that further littering will be less likely to occur.

-- Prevention: Create a sense of understanding, caring, and responsibility, often described as environmental stewardship, in our children so that they will not think of littering as an acceptable behavior in their world.
