Mission Statement

Have you heard the term "86it"? Its origins are debatable (give it a Google), but more importantly it means, "to get rid of something; to throw it out." We like it because it’s a sweet way of asking someone to throw something away. Join us on our crusade to show trash cans (and recycling bins) some respect.

Description

In 2008, the Wake County Board of Commissioners adopted a goal to address the roadside litter problem in Wake County. The 86it Anti-Litter Movement was developed and launched in 2010, with strategies and tactics to thoughtfully engage citizen participation and support.

Every one of us can be a litterer given the right circumstance: from intentionally littering because there isn’t a receptacle nearby to the unintentional escape of a piece of trash from a car door or unsecured load.

The goal of the 86it Anti-Litter movement is encourage a culture that believes:

1. littering is unacceptable to me and those around me;

2. every piece of litter hurts the image of my community;

3. every piece of litter is harmful to the environment; and

4. I’m responsible for my own trash.
