Litter Free School Zones

The Litter-Free School Zone program gives elementary and middle school students the training and specific education needed to understand the importance of keeping their school and its perimeter litter-free. In addition, students will learn their role and responsibilities in their environment.

Participating schools that maintain their litter-free commitment for a period of six months will be officially declared a Litter-Free School Zone with the posting of a sign at their school location during a special ceremony.

Contact us at 215-854-4000,  or email our Director at, to find out how your school can become a Litter Free School Zone!
