Pack It In Pack It Out

If you brought it with you, it’s trash. Food waste and garbage can harm wildlife and the environment. Even seemingly natural food waste, such as cores, peels, and pits, are considered trash and should always be taken with you. If in doubt, just pack it out!

Watch out for little pieces of trash such as gum wrappers, twist ties, and bottle caps as well. These items seem small, but they add up to a major problem for nature and wildlife. Avoid an accidental drop by placing your trash bag in a zippered pocket!
