This Saturday, April 19 marks the start of the 8th 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 19 – 26.

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 at

Over 83 tons of litter has been picked up by volunteers in the past 7 years of A Litter Bit Better! events. Litter makes our city look bad and pollutes our water resources. For the 8th 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
