ACUA and the Atlantic County Clean Communities Program invite you to participate in a
 two-week litter removal contest for a chance to win a mini-grant!



October 1-15, 2022


Litter teams have two weeks, from October 1-15, 2022, to remove litter from roadways, parks, or other public areas. No cleanups on any private property of any sort is permitted and will not be counted if submitted.

Contest is open to Atlantic County residents. Teams are limited to 15 people or less. Each participant can only be on one team.

Each team must report bags of trash or recycling collected through the form below after each cleanup. Pictures of material must be sent to verify the cleanups.

Groups are encouraged to brings the bags of litter home to place out with their own trash collection. If you need pickup, please let us know in the form below.

All teams must fill out a safety pledge prior to beginning the contest. No submissions will be accepted without first signing the pledge.

All teams must wear safety vests at all times.  Please contact us if you need supplies.  

The winners will be selected based on the amount of litter collected. Weight will be determined by a conversion formula of bags to pounds. Debris will all be given an average estimate weight for the item (ex. Average tire is 27 pounds).

Winners will be announced at ACUA's America Recycles Day event on Saturday, November 19, 2022.
