There are many ways for you to help -

1. Start a cleanup in your state - it doesn't matter if you already have loads of experience in volunteer work or have never organized anything in your life. All it takes is a decision to make things better in your state, and in your community.  Click the link on the left to read our advice on how to start.

2. Map the illegal waste around your home - download application for iPhone or Android phone and start mapping right away. Invite your friends to join you and see who can find the most garbage.  Go out together to discover and map new areas. Then you'll know where to go on the cleanup day.

3. Join the existing team in your state - to find out if there is already a team active in your state, simply go to the States with cleanup Team section above and see the states listed there. Each link leads to the state action homepage where you'll find the contact information and latest news from the local team.

4. Participate on the cleanup day - you can dedicate one day to make a big difference. Stay tuned to see when the cleanup days will take place in different states in the US. Bring your friends along and help out by simply cleaning up.

5. Spread the word - if you have friends who might be looking for a chance to make a difference, then be kind and help them out! From the 'Media' section you can find videos, flyers, newsletters, banners and other materials you can use.  Let your friends know about World Cleanup and invite them to join.

If none of these work for you, but you are still determined to save the world from being wasted, write us at [email protected] or  [email protected]
