“Lens on Litter” contest captures ugly and avoidable examples of trash across the state

Sick of seeing litter? You can document it and potentially win some cash.

Pennsylvania Resource Council (PRC) Is hosting an annual “Lens on Litter” contest to document avoidable examples of littering to galvanize public commitment to solutions.

Six prizes will be awarded to students and adult groups, from $100 to $500. Entrants can initiate a clean-up of their photographed area for extra judging points.

“We must tackle the Commonwealth’s growing waste problem and start moving toward the goals of a zero-waste and circular economy where post-consumer materials are reused and recycled,” said Darren Spielman, Executive Director of PRC.
