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 crew collected 4,676 bags of litter and cleaned 445 road miles during the 2017 pilot season. The Litter Wranglers return for the 2018 season from May through November.
