Prior to each cleanup, the team captain will schedule a bulk pickup with the municipal agency for the litter collected. 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 others, 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 review the 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 the waiver.
