The Jr. Litter League season officially kicks off October 17 and runs through December 15. Registration is open through October 1. Teams are expected to host their first clean-up the week of October 17.

Teams must complete at least four one-hour clean-ups to be considered for the competition. Teams will need to submit the amount of litter and leaves collected at each clean-up.

All participating groups will need to attend a virtual orientation before the start of the program.

The Jr. Litter League is open to teams of school classes, after-school clubs, and youth organizations. Teams should have a minimum of 7 and a maximum of 15 students with three adult leaders. All children on the team must be age 10 or older. Volunteer hours can be counted towards service-learning requirements.

You’ll receive a free set of supplies*, which will include all the items necessary to complete volunteer projects throughout the program.


All participants (or their adult guardians) are required to sign our volunteer and photo release waivers.
