  • Contract costs include non-profit organizations and contract labor;
  • Education costs include personnel time spent on education, education materials, etc.;
  • Equipment/Vehicle costs include operation of vehicles and equipment (FEMA rates apply);
  • Personnel costs are calculated by multiplying the employee’s hourly rate by the hours of labor expended for litter cleanup;
  • Supplies cost include trash bags, gloves, etc.;
  • Other costs include any additional monies spent that do not fall into one of the categories listed
