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.

League Rules

Timeline

The league runs from June 1st – August 31st.

Team Divisions

Teams will be divided into one of the following leagues: Business/Corporation, Nonprofit/Faith-Based Organization, Community Group, or Family/Individual.

Team Captains will designate which league their group is in during registration.

Team Members

Each team must have a captain, a 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.

Zip Code

Teams must identify in which zip code they will primarily be collecting litter for.

Safety First

Each team captain is required to watch a safety video and provide a safety orientation at each cleanup and make sure each player has completed a liability waiver before their first cleanup.

Register In Advance

All teams must register their litter cleanups with Keep Toledo/Lucas County Beautiful in advance and, if they plan to leave the bags for pickup, coordinate that pickup with Keep Toledo/Lucas County Beautiful. Teams that participated last year must re-register.

Equipment Provided

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. Fees may be charged for unreturned litter tongs.

Scoring

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.

Prohibited Items

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.

Start a Team

Teams should plan on doing 2 cleanups per month, June-August. All cleanup supplies will be provided by Keep Toledo/Lucas County Beautiful. Earn points based on how much litter you pick up. As you compete with other zip codes, teams will have the opportunity to earn some great prizes along the way.

Teams will sign up and compete to see who can collect the most litter. The cleanup season will run from June 1st through August 31st. All teams that complete at least 3 cleanups will be invited to an end-of-season celebration at a Toledo Mud Hens game. The teams that collect the most litter throughout the season will be invited to join Keep Toledo/Lucas County Beautiful staff and board members for dinner during the game!

All cleanup supplies will be provided by Keep Toledo/Lucas County Beautiful.

After each cleanup, you will place your bags of litter at a predetermined location for pickup and report your team stats for the day. Earn points based on how much litter you pick up. As you compete with other zip codes, teams will have the opportunity to earn some great prizes along the way.

Each team will have a designated team captain. Team captains are required to watch a safety orientation video that includes league rules, safety instructions, and other important information. It is the responsibility of the team captain to then communicate this information back to the rest of the team. The team captain will also be responsible for ensuring that all players have completed a waiver.
