Wake County began an exciting partnership with a company called Litterati in June 2021! Litterati has undergone some changes, but at the time the partnership started, it was a cleanup app and data dashboard that uses Artificial Intelligence technology to empower everyday individuals to make a significant, measurable impact on the environment while holding brands accountable for the waste they create and informing environmental research and policy.
Wake County residents were encouraged to clean up litter in their community while using the Litterati app under the challenge called Clean Up Wake County. The challenge ran through June 2022 with a goal of cleaning up 20,000 pieces of litter. That goal was surpassed by thousands of pieces of litter! Check out the graphics below for a breakdown of what was litter was picked up.
