The Community Litter Cleanup Program (CLCP) provides local governments with funding for litter pickup, illegal-dump cleanup, and litter-prevention education. This funding comes from the Waste Reduction, Recycling, and Model Litter Control Account. In 1998, the Legislature dedicated 20 percent of litter monies from this account to provide financial assistance to local governments.
In addition to funding the CLCP, the account pays for other litter-collection programs, along with recycling, waste reduction, and sustainability efforts. Fifty percent of the account is allocated to the Department of Ecology (Ecology), for use in state litter-collection and prevention programs. Ecology and other state agencies carry out these programs. The final 30 percent of the account is allocated to Ecology for waste reduction, recycling and sustainability efforts.
