To focus attention on the litter problem, the Pennsylvania Resources Council (PRC) is continuing its annual Gene Capaldi Lens on Litter Photo Contest, with a deadline of Oct. 31. Shown is the 2019 first place student winner titled “Trash Under the Bridge.”

In a 2019 Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful Questionnaire included in the Pennsylvania Litter Research Survey, the majority of respondents agreed or strongly agreed that litter is an environmental problem, ends up in the waterways, impacts quality of life, poses health and safety risks to people and animals and affects property values, according to a Pennsylvania Resources Council (PRC) release.

Photos of the problems can lead to prevention, according to the PRC release.
