Denver Recycles is excited to share that the TrashBlitz event is coming to Denver! This self-guided volunteer event offers Denverites the chance to participate in a community-driven project aimed at better understanding local litter – the type of material, brand, and quantity of plastic pollution present in our environment. Using the data collected by volunteers, the TrashBlitz organizer, 5Gyers, will use the information to create and support future efforts that address waste reduction and litter prevention. Other event sponsors include the Inland Ocean Coalition and Into the Sea.
