The Great Nova Scotia Pick-Me-Up is Nova Scotia’s largest volunteer-driven community clean-up program, promoting litter clean-ups across the province. Since the program started in 1992, the Clean Foundation has provided supplies and support to participants who wish to carry out community-based clean-ups.
In 2019, the Nova Scotia Adopt-A-Highway took over the delivery of the Great Nova Scotia Pick-Me-Up Program. Now the Adopt-A-Highway will be able to broaden their reach and remove even more litter from Nova Scotia than ever before. The Adopt-A-Highway is excited for the future with this new endeavor and are eager to support community-based clean-ups in addition to their roadside litter clean-ups.
Litter is an eyesore, poses health risks, affects water quality, and is often mistaken as food by wildlife. As well, studies show that litter begets litter, meaning people tend to litter in areas where there is already garbage on the ground.
