We are a group of volunteers committed to making our community a better place to live, one bag of trash at a time.

Our Mission

To make our Metropolitan area the cleanest, most litter-free and safest in Colorado.                

We are a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) nonprofit passionate about making Colorado Springs litter-free. Our goal is to solicit and organize volunteers to regularly pick up litter all around the Pikes Peak Region. We will also advocate to local governments, residential and private property owners, on how to better control our litter, particularly in areas that have repeated problems.
