Litter Bit Better 2016 Begins April 22nd in Rochester

Posted: Updated:
ROCHESTER, Minn. (FOX 47) -

So far, over 122 tons of litter has been collected by thousands of citizens since the program began in 2007. This year’s event will be April 22-29 and registration is now open.

Volunteers are encouraged to collect litter anytime during that week. Trash and recycling bags are provided, all you need to do is pick a location, pick a date, and pick it up! Registration information, maps and more can be found at

Litter makes our city look bad and can pollute our water. For the 11th year in a row, hundreds 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! Do your part and register today!

Share pick-up photos and stories on Facebook using #litterbitbetter or emailing them.
