Keep Nacogdoches Beautiful kicks off the 2017 Nacogdoches County Litter Index on February 14, 2017.
WHAT IS THE LITTER INDEX?
The Keep America Beautiful Litter Index is a step-by-step method of assessing current litter conditions which is used in thousands of communities and by municipalities nationwide. It is a tool used to visually assess the overall appearance of communities through indicators along roadways, such as litter and illegal dumping. The annual results are then used to develop a local plan to change attitudes and behaviors regarding litter and related issues.
The Nacogdoches County Litter Index is assessed by evaluating different areas in our community, including four long routes throughout the county and ten short routes within the city of Nacogdoches.
For the second year in arow, KNB will partner with the East Texas Jeep Club to conduct the visual analysis using a scoring system ranging from 1 to 4, with “1” being the best to “4” being the worst.
The 2016 Litter Index for Nacogdoches County rated 1.58.
The 2017 Litter Index for Nacogdoches County rated 1.76.
