Mark Your Calendars: Second Annual Nantucket Litter Derby!

Mark your calendars for Saturday, March 28th and join us for the Second Annual Nantucket Litter Derby! Look what we can accomplish as a community when we work together and have fun while doing it.

To everyone who participated in last year’s event, thank you! With your participation, together we can make an even bigger impact for the well-being of Nantucket’s neighborhoods, shorelines and wild places.  The DPW was instrumental in making this happen last year when the event brought in over 3.5 tons of litter composed of:

  • 2,400 pounds Non-Recyclable & Non-Compostable Waste/Construction & Demolition Debris Waste (1.2 tons)
  • 2,280 pounds of Recyclable Glass
  • 1400 pounds Scrap Metal including 4 bicycles (0.7 tons)
  • 280 pounds of Recyclable Plastic
  • 270 pounds Recyclable Tin/Aluminum
  • 15 Tires- 300 pounds worth!
  • 3 TVs
  • 1 washing machine
  • 6 bags Compostable Waste
  • 8 batteries
  • 5 quarts motor oil (hazardous waste)
  • 1 syringe
