How can I get involved?

  • Make sure to tag us on social media and use the hashtag #TrashPirates


What You'll Need

  • A bag (we prefer reusable but a plastic trash bag is perfectly fine)

  • Gloves

  • Litter picker (OPTIONAL)

  • A can-do spirit

When Should I Do A Litter Pick-Up?

  • Before a storm

  • After a storm

  • After trash/recycling are picked up

  • After outdoor events

  • ANYTIME!

Where Should I Do A Litter Pick-Up?

  • Parks and Playgrounds

  • Hiking Paths

  • Around stores and shopping malls

  • Your neighborhood/community

  • Places where lots of people go and gather outside

What Do I Do With All The Litter I Found?

  • Sort out what you find into two piles - recyclable and garbage. Then place these finds in the proper bins. This should help keep the items from getting back into our environment!

Kid Safety Tips

  • Bring a buddy

  • NEVER pick up something that is sharp - that includes knives, broken glass, needles, etc - ask a parent for help

  • Be aware of your surroundings - make sure you are staying safe and off the roads and parking lots
