Eye on the Environment – How littered has Hilliard been?

Melissa Muth is a member of the Hilliard Environmental Sustainability Commission.

Each affiliate must conduct a Litter Index every year as part of Keep America Beautiful to quantify litter in its area.

Hilliard became an affiliate late 2017, and performed a Litter index in 2018 and 2019. (Audits were not performed in 2020 or 2021 because of the pandemic. Six Keep Hilliard Beautiful board members (KHB), performed the 2022 Litter Indicator last month. The route was planned ahead of time.It was completely random and included both residential as well as commercial areas.

All members traveled in the same vehicle. Once we had reached the index street, all talk stopped and each person graded it individually. The street is graded 1 to zero or minimal litter, 2 to slightly littered, 3 to very littered and 4 to extremely littered.

All grading sheets and averages for the day are calculated at the end of each route.
