The third annual Litter League runs April 21 through June 3. Teams.compete in various litter-collection tournaments and challenges for awards and prizes in four categories, including most litter collected, and most creative reuse.
The Neighborhood Division, which includes any team of up to 12 friends and neighbors, currently features veteran teams from Penn Hills, Fineview and Beechview, as well as newcomers from Brookline, Millvale, Observatory Hill, California-Kirkbride, Sheraden, and Mt. Lebanon.
The Colleague Division is reserved for professional associates, and currently features teams from environmental outfitter REI, as well as two teams from various divisions of U.S. Steel.
In its first two years, players from the Litter League collected 75,000 pounds of “improperly managed manufactured waste” from Allegheny County streets and greenspaces. Now in its third season, the league anticipates increased participation and visibility for players and sponsors, concluding with a Downtown tournament during the Three Rivers Arts Festival. Litter League is presented by GeoTechnics.
