Join the Ten for Ten Collection Challenge
How does this action
help our Lagoon?
Litter found in waterways is often the result of poorly-managed trash on land. If not disposed of properly, your trash can end up in the lagoon and other waterways. This trash harms physical habitats, transports chemical pollutants, threatens aquatic life, and interferes with human uses of river, marine and coastal environments. The number one way to prevent trash pollution from ending up in our waterways is to reduce the amount of trash that is created in the first place.* This is where recycling can help! Join Recycle Brevard’s county-wide Ten for Ten Collection Challenge to divert excess waste from our landfills.
