Litter Research

Collecting litter and cleaning up illegal dump sites is the most expensive form of waste management by a factor of 10.  Wastes that are not properly disposed in conventional waste and recycling collection programs have far greater environmental impacts, as they spread through soils and waterways.  Littered beverage containers and papers represent loss of volume for recyclers.  MSW Consultants provides the following services to inform stakeholders about these issues:

  • Roadway and public space visible litter studies
  • Litter and illegal dumping policy research and analysis
  • Litter and illegal dumping benchmarking analysis
  • Stormwater and marine debris studies
