Woods Not Waste (WNW) is a community-sponsored woodland clean-up project focused on preventing and removing waste from Montana’s forests and national parks.
Keeping Our Woodlands Clean for Everyone to Enjoy: Our Mission
Our mission is to use public funding to keep trash out of our woodlands by providing financial support and funding clean-up events.

How you can help support our non-profit…
Trail heads, pathways, campsites, and roadsides are routinely littered with tires, couches, litter, and bags of garbage that are abandoned. After some research, WNW founders determined that many people do this to avoid paying dump fees to properly dispose of their garbage. Here’s how you can help.

How we help…
Waste Collection Vouchers
We work directly with local waste collection facilities to create paid vouchers for low income individuals to have some or all of their dump fees covered. This allows them to pay for large drop offs such as furniture or broken appliances.
Volunteer Clean Up
Workers involved in Woods Not Waste may organize community-based clean up projects for areas with high volumes of trash.
