Let’s hear it for the Youth Litter Patrol!

Throughout the summer and fall seasons, Litter Free enlists the aid of various youth clubs and organizations to clean up targeted, public areas in Juneau. If your group is thinking of a fundraiser, the Youth Litter Patrol might be a good one to consider.

This program does several things:

  • groups earn money for their fundraising projects
  • the beauty and health of Juneau is maintained
  • those picking up trash become devoted to a litter free community


  • Volunteers must be members of a youth group
  • Cleanup areas must be public areas (no private property cleanups allowed)
  • Youth volunteers are paid $12 per hour to pick up trash, up to $1,200

To find out more about how to organize a cleanup, please contact:
