Litter Committee Meeting Agenda

Wednesday, August 23rd, 10:30am, Spindale House

  1. Welcome

  2. Old Business

  3. Spring Litter Sweep

  4. For next year, reach out to college service groups on their spring break (reach out in November, spring breaks probably around March) - Gabe to see if ROC can combine litter pickups with other service opportunities for these groups

  5. New Business

  6. Litter Bowl

  7. School Commitments

  8. LLCA, RS Central, TJCA and ERHS committed so far

  9. The ROC - Liz Powell & Susan Quinn to be school reps if we get the final commitment

  10. Bins

  11. Rep Services cannot supply the bins this year due to a supply issue

  12. GFL (Polk County) is a possible option to approach - contact Victor Morales

  13. Conclusion: no bins used. The Litter Bowl will be treated as a sweep, bags left on the side of the road for NCDOT collection. Motion made by Gabe Isaac to turn the Litter Bowl into a sweep format, seconded by George Moyer.

  14. Bags only - large items are a safety concern

  15. Instruction cards with the new rules printed out with the supply kits given to each school representative - add a QR code to the pickup report on these

  16. Some type of scoreboard/poster at each school with a large bag count to boost competitiveness (because there are no bins for students to see fill up bit by bit)

  17. Mascot visits

  18. Have SRO at schools guard Roxi at games?
