Mission View Elementary School was certified as litter-free, as there were only 20 tiny fragments of litter found at the time of inspection. Hollinger K-8 got an "excellent grade" and Ochoa Community Magnet, "good."

For more information about the litter-free program for kids, contact B.J. Cordova of Tucson Clean & Beautiful at 520-791-3109.
