community litter cleanup, Walking for Rochester, Rochester NY

Come join us at Community Clean Ups!


Join Walking For Rochester as we host seasonal community clean ups throughout the year EVERY WEEKEND. Our season runs from April to September. With the support of our partners, we choose unique locations every week of our season to encourage the community to help us clean the streets of our beautiful city.



2022 Community Cleanup total: 727 lbs.


Live 2023 total: 1,300 lbs.

We provide all the equipment for this family-friendly activity. No need to RSVP, but we ask that you speak to our event coordinator at the event before you pick up litter. Look out for our signs and the check-in table. It is important to check in so you can learn more about litter safety, and so you can earn a chance to win a prizes from one of our local partners. With safety in mind, we do ask that all volunteers sign a waiver at every event. Remember that in New York State any volunteer under 18 must be accompanied by a guardian at least 18 years old.  


Follow us on one of our social networks or sign up for our email newsletter to stay informed on where and when events will be held. 


You could win a gift card to a local business, green products, candy and more! 

So please join us in some fun competition and be a part of our movement to create a community that is more beautiful and safer for all.


See our sponsors! These supporters are the ones that help make our program a reality!
