What equipment do I need to clean up litter on my own?
Purchasing your own trash grabber will allow you to pick up around your neighborhood whenever you want. We suggest buying a durable industrial grade tool to make the job safer and easier.
A pair of gardening gloves, bright clothing that makes you easily visible to cars and a trash bag are all you need.
