About The Litter Legion

The Litter Legion started in the summer of 2020

to help address the impacts of $106 million in pandemic-related budget cuts to the NYC Department of Sanitation.


Since then we have hosted over 95 group cleanups with over 1,300 participants, including at least 350 unique volunteers.

Our goal is to encourage residents to take an active role in keeping their communities clean.
