News Release

Help Make Rochester A Litter Bit Better!

Pick-up locations still available – Sign-up today

This Saturday, April 22 marks the start of the 11th Annual Help Make Rochester A Litter Bit Better! Clean-up Event! Volunteers, participating alone or with a group, are encouraged to collect litter in Rochester anytime between April 22 – 29. Trash and recycling bags are provided, all you need to do is pick a location, pick a date, and pick it up! Pick up locations are still available. Registration information, maps and more can be found Participants can help encourage others to participate by sharing photos of their group in action on Facebook using the tag #litterbitbetter.


Over 122 tons of litter has been picked up by volunteers in the past 10 years of A Litter Bit Better! events. Not only have these efforts removed trash from the environment, but it has also prevented litter as clean environments discourage littering. Litter-free landscapes also make our community a healthy place to be. Help us break the litter cycle by participating in the annual Help Make Rochester A Litter Bit Better! Clean-up Event.


Litter makes our city look bad and pollutes our water resources. For the 11th year in a row, thousands of citizens will join forces to prevent pollution and remove litter from parks, neighborhoods and businesses in Rochester during this weeklong event. Will you be one of them?


Everyone can Help Make Rochester A Litter Bit Better! including children, adults, businesses, church groups, boy and girl scouts, neighborhood associations, and others. Litter pickups are easy, rewarding, and fun! Be part of something big –Registration is open at
