6th Scouts Trash The Trash Day

Scouts Trash the Trash Day is a yearly International Messengers of Peace project for Scouts around the world, where each Scout is challenged to bring a friend or family member along and pick up at least one Kilo (2.2 pounds) of trash each on the first Saturday in May. The idea for Scouts Trash the Trash Day came from the scouts of Troop 1206 in Helena, Montana (now run by Venturing Crew 2206) after realizing that there are several days throughout the year that Scouts get together and do the same thing on the same day. Days like Jamboree on the Air and Internet, Jamboree on the Trail, Trees for the World, World Neckerchief Day, but there was not a day for Scouts to all get together and clean up their communities. Thus Scouts Trash the Trash Day was started. Scouts are asked to bring a non-scout with them on this day of service in order to double the impact of their trash cleaning effort. Scouts Trash the Trash Day is about more than just cleaning our planet, it is a day to show the world what Scouting is about, educate individuals about Scouting and recruit new boys, girls and adults into the Scouting movement.

To participate in this day of service, Scout groups are asked to organize their own Trash clean up day on the first Saturday in May (May 2, 2020).
Due to the Covid-19 outbreak a second event was added for this year on July 11, 2020
Scouts are not limited to these dates, they can also pick any day of the year for their project
Scout groups do not need to register for this event, but we ask you to in order to have a means to measure the impact Scouts on this world trash clean up event.
Registration is simple, we ask only for the name of your Scout group, name of your national Scouting organization, what country you are in, and a contact email for your group. Your email will be used to verify registration.
You don't need to be in a Scout group to participate.
