The Litter Index Survey is a tool developed by Keep America Beautiful to help its 400+ affiliates determine the litter situation in their communities. Each spring we conduct the Litter Index Survey to measure how clean 119 square miles of Shreveport is. This includes a visual assessment of the presence of litter per zip codes: 71101, 71103, 71104, 71106, 71107, 71108, and 71109.
