Hinkley Center, 1994

In 1993 the Florida Legislature established a 50 % litter and marine debris reduction goal for the period of January 1, 1994 through January 1, 1997. The Legislature directed the Florida Center for Solid and Hazardous Waste Management (the Center) to design and conduct annual litter surveys that could be used to measure progress toward that goal. The legislation also required that a seven-member Advisory Committee be established to advise the Center on the design and implementation of the study. The members of the Advisory Committee were representatives from business and industry, local government, and environmental interest groups.
