About Toledo Litter League
A community-wide, summer-long, litter cleanup and beautification initiative!
Toledo Litter League is a competitive baseball-themed litter abatement program aimed at striking out litter in Toledo and the rest of Lucas County. Teams will consist of businesses, neighborhood groups, faith-based organizations, private clubs, civic organizations, and individuals.
Toledo vs. Columbus
This year's program will be a head-to-head challenge with the City of Columbus. Let's show 'em what we got, Toledo.
The league runs from May 27th – August 31st.
This year teams will be divided into one of the following: Business/Corporation, Nonprofit/Faith-Based Organization, Community Group, or Family/Individual.
Each team must have a Captain, team name, and a roster of no more than 20 players. Any player under age 13 must be accompanied by a parent, guardian, or other responsible adult.
Teams must identify what zip code they will be collecting litter for. All cleanups by that team must then take place within that zip code.
Each Team Captain is required to watch a safety video and provide a safety orientation at each cleanup. Each player must complete a liability waiver.
Register In Advance
All teams must register their litter cleanups with Keep Toledo/Lucas County Beautiful in advance. Teams that participated last year must re-register.
Keep Toledo/Lucas County Beautiful will provide each team with equipment that includes safety vests, gloves, litter grabbers, and trash bags. Equipment can be held by the team captain during the Litter League season given that the team is regularly conducting cleanups. After a three weeks lapse with no clean-ups, equipment must be returned.
Team Captains are responsible for submitting a score sheet to report stats after each cleanup via the Toledo Litter League website. Teams will score 1 run for every full bag of litter they collect.
Tires and bulk items will not be included in scoring and cannot be collected during Litter League. If bulky items are found during cleanups, these will be reported on the Toledo Litter League website separately and Keep Toledo/Lucas County Beautiful will coordinate their removal.

Teams will sign up and compete by zip code. Groups can then identify their own areas to clean, or Keep Toledo/Lucas County Beautiful can help to identify areas in your zip code that are most in need of litter cleanup. The cleanup season will run from May 27th through August 31st. All teams will be invited to an end-of-season celebration at a Toledo Mud Hens game, with the teams collecting the most litter throughout the season scoring free tickets to this event!
