UNLITTERLA IS POSTPONED until later in the year due to recommendations in response to the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic. Although the distributed nature of our event meant that cleanups would be in small groups with no need for close contact to anyone at any time, we had anticipated several locations where more than 50 volunteers might gather for sign-in and route assignments, and the CDC has recommended cancelling any gathering of that size or larger. UNLITTERLA is a valuable effort and statement for our region, but not at the risk of anyone's health. If you have already signed up, you will hear from us and we will keep you apprised of when UNLITTERLA will be rescheduled. If you have not signed up, you are welcome to sign up (to express your interest) and we will keep in touch. Thank you and please continue to do your part to keep our city safe.
HUNDREDS OF MILES OF STREETS CLEANED IN A FEW HOURS
On a single event day, more than a thousand volunteers will turn out to make a noticeable improvement to the greater Los Angeles region. Teams of 6-8 volunteers will each walk a 2-4 mile route, picking up litter from sidewalks, gutters, and fences.
Each route starts and ends at one of LA Metro's 132 subway, light rail, or express bus stations, or at a neighborhood hub sites. Kicking off with a morning briefing and distribution of supplies (bags, gloves, grabbers, maps, T-shirts, etc), volunteers fan out on foot or on the Metro system to clean their routes. When they are done, they can celebrate their achievement - simultaneously UNLITTERING hundreds of miles of Southland streets!
UNLITTERLA is not about simply picking up after others - it's about changing culture and habits in our city, even for those not participating by the event's high visibility and media coverage.
You, your company or organization can be part of this exciting event, by in-kind or cash sponsorships of supplies, transportation, and perks for volunteers. Event-level and Route-level sponsorships are available. Contact us to find out more.
Group sign-ups and individual sign-ups are open, sign up now. You will be able to select your preferred clean-up route (as available, first come, first served).
