WHAT IS A litter leader?

Litter Leaders are volunteers that are committed to litter prevention in Durham. Litter Leaders will be trained on litter cleanup safety, cleanup operating procedures, and the basics of volunteer leadership. Once you have received training, we will provide the resources necessary to be an advocate and leader.


  • Be a community leader by sharing resources and information about litter prevention

  • Get to know new spots and new people in Durham

  • Spend time outdoors making Durham clean and beautiful

  • Help expand our capacity to do more good!

Litter Leader Requirements

  • Attend a training workshop

  • After completing the training, shadow a KDB staff member or experienced litter leader at a litter removal event

  • Complete 6 hours (about 2-3 events) of litter cleanup leadership a year

Litter Leaders will have the opportunity to earn incentives and build upon their knowledge at select trainings throughout the year.

Thank you for being dedicated to making Durham clean, green, and litter-free!
