NOTE: The Blitz will not take place in 2020 out of an abundance of caution during the COVID-19 pandemic. Planning for the 2021 Blitz is underway.

About the Blitz

Litter – it’s everywhere!  You see it on our streets, in our parks, on our shorelines, and in the water.  Blown by the wind on trash day, tossed out car windows, intentionally dumped — however it gets there, it’s an eyesore and bad for the environment.

You can help! The Blitz is an annual clean-up that brings together hundreds of volunteers with one goal in mind – keeping our land and water clean by removing litter from our neighborhoods.  From bags, bottles, and butts to tires and larger items, Blitz volunteers make a difference.
