Allegheny CleanWays & Friends of the Riverfront are making and distributing kits for individuals to conduct their own litter cleanups!
This Spring, from April 21st - June 3rd, Litter Collecting teams of up to 12 players will compete in tournaments across Allegheny County, accomplishing trashy challenges to earn points and win prizes.
Hosted by Friends of the Riverfront and Allegheny CleanWays, the Litter League is a 6-week competition for Allegheny County’s best litter picking teams! Join with your co-workers in the Colleague Division or rally your friends and community members in the Neighborhood Division.
At the end of the season, winning teams are awarded in each of four categories:
Support and inspire the league through generous, enthusiastic sportsmanship and outstanding courtesy
THE HEAVY LIFTERS
Collect the most overall litter (by weight)
Demonstrate the most detailed and thorough reporting
THE CLEANUP ARTISTS
Exhibit the most creative reuse of litter

Good Hunting players and may the best teams win!!
Throughout the year, we work with community partners to organize Neighborhood Litter Walks. These are low-intensity events, excellent for casual adventures with families. At each walk, volunteers follow a local guide for roughly 90 minutes, collecting lightweight litter in public streets and pathways, followed by a social hour at a nearby restaurant or public gathering place. We'll provide all the equipment, you provide the helping hands! Register for an upcoming event or write firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a Litter-Walk in your Neighborhood.
