Hudson scored a 1.19 on the 2022 Community Appearance Index! What does this mean? The Community Appearance Index is an annual roadside litter audit to determine the volume of litter around the community. A score of 1.19 means Hudson has a very low amount of litter!
Hudson neighborhoods were well-maintained. However, some litter was found along the heavily traveled main roads. How can we make our results even better and reduce litter in our City? Residents can help by picking up litter they see in their neighborhoods and around Hudson. They can also participate in organized clean-up events. The local nonprofit GoGreenGo hosts plogs which are litter pick-up events. Nothing is scheduled at this time but be on the lookout for an event in August or September!
When picking up litter, make sure to wear gloves and do not pick up anything that could be hazardous. Be careful walking near streets and wear bright colored clothing. Children should always be accompanied by an adult. Dispose of the trash bags in garbage containers.
As an official affiliate of Keep America Beautiful, Hudson is required to complete the Community Appearance Index. The Hudson Environmental Awareness Committee and volunteers complete the index and report the results to Keep America Beautiful, contributing to local and national education efforts to keep the environment clean.
