What began with one bucket, a trash grabber and a friend quickly turned into a mission of increasing community engagement to reduce litter in the Omaha area by providing tools, education and opportunity. The Blue Bucket Project has provided over 650 litter pick up starter kits to volunteers in our community.  You can help make a difference. Start by contacting us!

Who We Are

We are a community funded, community engaging project in the Omaha area. Our mission: 

  • Increase community engagement to reduce litter in the Omaha area by providing tools, education, and opportunities. 

What We Do

Not only do we provide litter starter 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 ups in areas that need extra help!


Working together. The Blue Bucket Project works with groups doing team building or service projects. Our capacity is for smaller groups while our friends at Keep Omaha Beautiful and Omaha Parks VIP are able to work with larger groups of 30 or more volunteers.  Omaha Community Foundation grant helped the BBP donate litter kits to both inCOMMONCD community centers for litter kit check out stations. We also had very successful Flash Trash Mobs to celebrate cleaner neighborhoods! 


See the Difference, Be the Difference

What we do and why we do it. In just 60 minutes, a Flash Trash Mob of 22 volunteers collected 70+ bags of litter/trash plus odds and ends! Creating a cleaner, safer environment plus a more attractive neighborhood.

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.
