About The Litter Legion

We started in the summer of 2020 to help address the impact of the $106 billion pandemic-related budget cuts to the NYC Department of Sanitation.


Since our start, we have hosted over 70 group cleanups with over 600 participants, including at least 250 unique volunteers.

In 2021, we hosted 35 community cleanups where we collected a total of 70 bags of recycling and 2,287 pounds of loose litter.
