Ecology Youth Corps

For over 40 years, the Ecology Youth Corps has hired Washington teens and young adults to pick up litter on our state's roads and highways. Our crews pick up more than a million pounds of litter each year, and recycle just under 200,000 pounds of materials. Learn more about this program, including how to apply for one of our 300 annual positions.
