Making a Difference One Piece of Litter at a Time

The Ecology Youth Corps (EYC) is Washington's largest youth employment program. EYC has removed litter and promoted recycling and litter abatement throughout the state since 1975. During this time, EYC employed more than 12,000 youths. Annually, we hire more than 300 teens statewide to provide an important service to their communities. EYC members earn minimum wage while gaining valuable job skills, teamwork experience, and safety awareness. On average, our crews pick up 1,200,000 pounds of litter per year and recycle just under 200,000 pounds of materials.
