I think the least anyone can do is pick up trash left behind by others.
Unfortunately there are a lot of slobs (and worse) out especially close
to roads and trailheads. Some of the trash is just stuff which fell
off/out of another's pack.
I gained two useful items that way -- a Sierra Club pocket book of
Starr's Guide to the John Muir Trail. And in the parking lot of the TH
for Salt Springs Reservoir on the Mokulmne, I found the best light
weight Swiss Army knife I've seen.
I've also carried out a lot of trash left behind by others.
And I've probably inadvertently left some trash behind too.
