Litter Quitters

A group of like-minded organizations have come together to create a community outreach and public awareness campaign to encourage everyone, but more specifically, high school students, to stop littering.  The Litter Quitters group includes: Jefferson County Conservation District, Cawaco RC&D, City of Bessemer Stormwater Management, City of Birmingham Stormwater Management, City of Hoover, City of Leeds, Jefferson County Commission, Jefferson County Department of Health, Keep Birmingham Beautiful, Freshwater Land Trust, Storm Water Management Authority, Inc., Black Warrior River Keepers, Creative Directions and Santek Waste Services.

Did you know that age and maturity are major factors in determining whether someone will be a litterer?  The most frequent culprits are teenagers and young adults.  This demographic is more than three times more likely to litter than older adults and that’s why this campaign is aimed at that demographic.

Litter Quitters is spearheading a video competition among the public high schools located in Jefferson County.  The County has been divided into three watershed sections that are located in the North (Locust Fork), West (Black Warrior/Valley Creek) and East (Cahaba). Public high schools located in each of these sections have been invited to participate in this project and will compete among the other high schools within their section.  High school students will create anti-litter, stormwater protection videos that will be available for voting on the Litter Quitters website.  Winners will be determined by the number of “likes” so students will be encouraged to share their messages on social media.  Winning schools will be awarded cash prizes and will be featured on ABC33/40’s Talk of Alabama.

Student representatives from various schools will also be featured in a public service message that will air on television.  With your support and ample funding, multiple messages with students from all participating schools will be created and aired more often.  This will make an even bigger impact, and other mediums such as radio, billboards and social media can be added.

We need your support to help make this project reach as many people as possible in our community.  As you know, litter has an impact both environmentally and financially on our communities.  Corporate support is crucial to making this project work.  We appreciate you considering sponsorship of the Litter Quitters project.  All funds will be paid to the Jefferson County Soil and Water Conservation Foundation, a 501c3 organization; therefore, all financial support is tax deductible.

If you have any questions about sponsorship, please call our Litter Quitters Committee liaison, Jana White at 205-531-3703 or email at
