THE BLUE BUCKET PROJECT
Beginning a new year as a 501c3 organization!
What began with one bucket, a trash grabber and a friend quickly turned into a mission to provide tools to help. The Blue Bucket Project has already given out 400 blue bucket litter pick up starter kits since March 2021. Now you can help make your community a better place. Start the process by contacting us!
To find out more about Flash Trash Mobs, click the link for 'events' in the menu. FTMs are no RSVP but if you click on the link there is a place for you to submit your email address for a reminder or calendar post.
WHAT WE DO
Not only do we give out kits, we also help pick up litter! We each have our own neighborhoods plus we organize Flash Trash Mobs for a quick intensive 60 min pick up in areas that need extra help!
To increase individual or family engagement and motivation in helping keep our community litter free by providing equipment, resources and opportunity.
Included in every litter kit is:
a 5 gallon bucket, a few trash bags, a grabber tool, gloves, a safety vest and resources. (total worth about $25)
Each participating household will receive a complimentary kit. If others are requested, there is a minimal donation of $20.
You can help put more litter kits into the hands of neighbors and friends. Click on the button to donate via PayPal.

"This is a GREAT organization that wants to help keep Omaha clean and nice looking. It's all free, and you can do your part with just a little bit of your time. You can get out and walk, meet your neighbors, and do something nice (and cheap) to help keep Omaha clean!" CM (one of the BBP participants.)
