Love Our City - Great American Cleanup

Green Bucket Brigade 

The Green Bucket Brigade is the City of Norfolk’s newest litter task force, inviting businesses, nonprofits, government, and all residents of Norfolk to join in the fight against litter. Litter affects us all, and we are making it easy to Love Our City through the Green Bucket Brigade. It is simple: adopt your own litter kit including a green 5-gallon bucket, a litter grabber, trash bags, and KNB swag. Keep your corner clean and inspire others to do the same. Join the fight here and keep Norfolk LITTER-FREE!
