Litter Wranglers Program

The Litter Wranglers program is Snohomish County’s response to residents’ concerns about litter issues. The crew responds to resident calls and emails by working the roadsides and collecting the trash in areas with excessive litter. The Litter Wranglers also allow other county employees to stay focused on maintaining and repairing Snohomish County’s vital infrastructure. This program helps to fulfill the county’s goal of ridding the areas of unsightly trash.

The Litter Wranglers were not fielded during 2020 due to the health crisis but have returned for the 2021 season from April through October. The crew collected more than 6,000 bags of litter and cleaned more than 800 road miles during the 2019 season. 

Residents are asked to abide by current COVID-19 social distancing guidelines of six feet and to wear a mask while near the Litter Wranglers this season. New protocols have also been established for the 2021 season and will be followed by the crew due to the ongoing health crisis.
