Goodshop is just one way to help us raise money.  Use Goodsearch as your search engine. Goodsearch donates a penny to Waste Watchers every time you make a search. If just five people made three searches a day using goodsearch and designating WW as their charity, we'd get $54.75 and it won't cost you a penny. Recruit a few friends and see how easy it is to donate.

What are we?

We work in ways large and small, from picking up litter and supporting the VA DOT Adopt-a-Highway litter abatement program [see Adopt-a-Highway Tab above], promoting recycling, to influencing public policy. There's a place for everyone and we need everyone's help.  We are also supporting a research study on the influences of balloons as litter.  To learn about the study or to report balloon litter, go to the ‘Links’ tab at the top of the page and click on the appropriate links.  Check out the 3rd annual Waste Watchers essay contest, link

Where are we?

Waste Watchers is active all over the Shore. Wherever someone picks up a piece of litter, Waste Watchers is there. Any time a family or an office decides they can start recycling or a teacher decides to teach about where garbage goes, Waste Watchers is there.  Whenever an individual, a group of friends, a church, a club or a business decides to actively do something about our roadside litter by adopting a highway and cleaning it four times a year, Waste Watchers is there to help.

Why?

Garbage that isn't disposed of responsibly hurts everyone. It's dangerous, costly, and ugly. It's also killing off the very animals and ecosystems we love so much.

How?

Waste Watchers has a team of volunteers (Trash Talkers) who will come to your school, business, office, or home to educate you about reducing consumption, reusing what you can, and recycling. We facilitate litter pick-up events.   We also sponsor an essay contest in the schools,  See  "Photos" tab above for 2012 winners.   To sign up to volunteer in our projects,  use this email

When?

Waste Watchers meetings are every second Wednesday of the month except for August and December.  We meet at the Eastern Shore Chamber of Commerce in Melfa from 11am to 1pm.  Usually we just bring our lunches and get to work.  Everyone is welcome.
