THE BLUE BUCKET PROJECT
News Flash: As of January 1, 2022, The Blue Bucket Project will be a nonprofit. We look forward to serving the community in the best way possible.
Have you been out walking in your neighborhood, park or trail? Notice litter along the way? The Blue Bucket Project has a solution! We have already given out 230 Blue Bucket Litter Pick Up Starter Kits! Continue on to find out more and how to get yours.
WHO WE ARE
We are a community funded, community engaging project. Our mission is: To increase individual or family engagement and motivation to keep our community litter-free by providing equipment, resources, and opportunities.
We are not a club and you do not have to sign up to participate! However, it is great to have supplies to help make it easier.
These are a few neighborhoods in Omaha that have already benefited from their Blue Bucket Kit:
Montclair 132/Center Neighborhood
North Omaha Neighborhood Alliance
SW Omaha 178th/Harrison
WHAT WE DO
The Blue Bucket Project believes that our communities and parks will become more attractive for everyone if we all do our part.
A clean city is an attractive city, and a safer city. The Blue Bucket Project freely gives litter kits to anyone who would like to give it a try.
Included in every litter kit is:
a bucket, bags, grabber, gloves, a florescent arm band or safety vest and resources.
All freely given.
In order to sustain our mission we have decided each participating household will receive one complimentary bucket. If others are requested, there will be a minimal fee of $20 for additional kits. This is a community funded, community engaging opportunity to pay it forward. We can reach many households as we continue to resupply our stock. Many people are already doing great work in our community. We hope to enhance those efforts.
