The International Coastal Cleanup, designed by Ocean Conservancy, is an international initiative which takes place September 1st through October 31st encouraging the removal of trash from our beaches and waterways around the world. This cleanup is fueled by volunteer organizations and individuals to change behavior toward cleaner, healthier waterways. Each piece of debris collected from the cleanup site is identified and tracked to provide a cumulative understanding of the marine debris in our waterway.
The Community Appearance Index, also known as the Litter Index, is a tool designed by Keep America Beautiful to visually evaluate the overall appearance of a community using litter as an indicator. Every year, volunteers cover 60 routes throughout Norfolk to conduct an analysis of litter in the city. This dataset is updated annually; the data begins in 2010. The Litter Index survey is normally conducted in August; the 2020 survey will be delayed due to COVID-19.

The Norfolk Animal Care and Adoption Center (NACC) is the city’s animal sheltering facility. The NACC is an open-admission shelter; animals are never turned away, regardless of species, age, health or temperament. This data reports on an animal from the moment it arrives at the shelter (intake) to the moment it leaves (outcome). It also reports on foster activities.
Bike and pedestrian trip counters have been installed at specific locations along the Elizabeth River Trail and elsewhere on Norfolk’s bike network to accurately count pedestrian and cyclist use along the trail and bike network. This counter system combines the passive infrared sensor and an inductive loop sensor; an intelligent subsystem analyzes the signal from both sensors in order to count and classify each user. This data begins in April 2019 and is updated weekly.
