The idea came during the daily bus rides to and from school. Along her bus route, Homer Glen resident Justyn Boyce, 10, would see litter scattered across the side of the streets and in the nearby grass. Surprised by the volume of trash, Boyce would even try to count how many pieces of garbage she saw each way of her commute.
