Interested in cleaning up litter on the trail or in a park? Here’s a few tips:
- San Jose has a litter cleanup program that you can signup for. They’ll give you some basic equipment free-of-charge.
- Basic recommended equipment (in order of importance):
- Tough trash bags that can handle sitting outside for a few days without falling apart.
- An ergonomic grabber tool.
- Non-ergonomic grabber tools will still work, but will hurt your hand after a half hour or so.
- The grabber tools provided by the city may not look like much, but they’re much better than what you’ll get at most hardware stores (the common Unger ones mostly work fine, but they tend to bend and have alignment problems).
- Gloves that are tough, but cheap enough that you don’t mind getting rid of them if they get really nasty. Bulk cheap garden gloves from your local hardware store will work fine.
- A box cutter (recommendation can be found here).
- If you pickup litter along the trail, leaving your bags of litter (securely tied of course) next to the public trash cans seems to result in the bags being removed by the city without issue. However, you may wish to contact the city for an official recommendation on where to leave bags of litter you pick up.
- Please create an issue on github if you know of a better process to use for disposal of bags of litter.
