Reducing Waste in Our Communities

Clean Water Action is working to clean up the trash that blights our communities and fouls our rivers and streams. Clean Water Action advocates for public policies and direct actions that result in reducing use of single use bags, increasing recycling by more people, waste reduction, and a movement towards zero waste.
