Hinkley Center, 1995

The 1993 amendment to the Florida Solid Waste Act established a three-year goal of reducing litter and marine debris by 50% from 1994 to 1997. The Legislature directed the Florida Center for Solid and Hazardous Waste Management to conduct annual litter surveys to measure the state's progress toward that goal. As directed by the Legislature, the Center appointed a broad-based advisory committee consisting of representatives from business, government and environmental organizations. The Center designed a methodology and completed surveys in 1994 and 1995 that provide data on the quantity and composition of litter in Florida. The third annual survey will be conducted in 1996.
