Save the Date: The next "Help Make Rochester A Litter Bit Better!" event is April 21-28, 2018.
In late 2006, two citizens came to Mayor Ardell Brede with the idea of getting community members involved in a city-wide litter cleanup effort. The Mayor brought a team of organizations together to plan and coordinate what would become the annual "Help Make Rochester A Litter Bit Better!" event.
Since then, the program has been growing and evolving. Over 122 tons of litter has been removed from the City of Rochester by 29,000+ volunteers since the event first began. Event summaries from past events are available below. More information about the program, including registration details, annual summaries, and photos, can be found at the RNeighbors website. Answers to Frequently Asked Questions are available here.
