Our beautiful City of Port St. Lucie has developed into a thriving diverse community for all people. We live in the midst of gorgeous nature and wildlife, and this is our home - where we raise our families, create memories and set down roots. Our homes are connected to our community, our City. We wish to keep our City safe, clean and beautiful for future generations, and it behooves each of us to do our part today.

Not only is LEAP a tool to unite our City Departments in our commitment to litter prevention, but this plan serves as a tool to unite our community. LEAP serves as a reminder to residents that they are deserving of a safe, clean and beautiful place to call home. Reducing litter through shared community, business and government actions will reduce waste and ensure Port St. Lucie residents and business owners use resources more efficiently.

Whether you live here all year-round, are seasonal or simply passing through, you play an important part in the overall well-being of our community. Join our efforts as we LEAP into a “Culture of Clean.”
