The Blue Bucket Project

  What began with one bucket, a trash grabber and a friend quickly turned into a mission to provide tools for others to help. The Blue Bucket Project has given out over 500 litter pick up starter kits.  You can help make our communities better places. Start by contacting us!

Who We Are

We are a community funded, community engaging project.

Our mission:  To increase individual or family engagement and motivation to keep our community litter free by providing equipment, resources and opportunity.

What We Do

Not only do we give out  kits, we 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!

The voting is over.  We have the deepest of gratitude for you and Veridian Credit Union.

Voting is complete!

Deep Gratitude for you.

We won second place and $2500 in the Veridian 'Spark the Spirit of Giving' Campaign. Thanks to Veridian Credit Union for supporting our project. The community spirit and involvement is exciting.

Blue Bucket Kits

The Blue Bucket Project freely gives litter pick up starter kits to anyone who'd like to help keep our community cleaner and safer. Each kit includes a 5 gal bucket, grabber tool, reusable gloves, 3o gal trash bags and a safety vest. In order to sustain our mission, one complimentary kit per household. Need more? $20 each


Flash Trash Mobs

A Flash Trash Mob (FTM) is a group of people who gather at a specific time & place to do 60 minutes of intense yet fun litter  gathering. Anyone can attend. Supplies are provided or you can bring your own. FTMs are often at highly used intersections or areas of need. We  schedule mini-mobs mid week for mobsters.


Community Service

The Blue Bucket Project is classified as a community service nonprofit under environmental cleanup. Individuals or students can work to help their community as either a volunteer or to complete community service hours. We are approved by the National Safety Council

 Nebraska Chapter.
