According to a release from Megan Duffy Moeller, a storm water educator with the Rochester Public Works Department and coordinator of the campaign, this year's 'A Litter Bit Better' is set to take place the week of April 23rd through the 30th, and registration is now open for groups to sign up and take part.

If you're not familiar with the campaign, the A Litter Bit Better website describes what the annual clean-up is all about. It says, " One week every April, thousands of volunteers work together across Rochester to scour ditches, parks, waterways and boulevards to pick up tons of trash! Service groups, businesses, scout troops, schools, faith groups, and neighborhoods pitch in to make A Litter Bit Better! an annual event in the City of Rochester."

The site also says it's easy to take part-- all you have to do is sign up. "Volunteers are encouraged to collect litter anytime during that week. Trash and recycling bags are provided, all you need to do is pick a location, pick a date, and pick it up! Registration information, maps and more can be found at," the site says.

Over 112 tons of trash has been collected by the thousands of citizens and volunteers during the nine year the 'A Litter Bit Better' program has been around, the site also noted. That's a lot of garbage that's been picked up off the streets of Rochester-- let's see how much more we can add this year!
