Frequently Asked Questions

I noticed that the BVCCC now links to the Texas Litter Database to collect cleanup data. How will you track my data for the Clean-up Challenge so my community receives credit?2024-01-05T18:32:44+00:00

For the 2024 Clean-up Challenge, please enter “E-sn” in the external ID field so that we can export your data for the Clean-up Challenge separately from all other data being entered around the state.

How do I measure the litter data that I am reporting?2023-02-08T19:01:10+00:00

The report form uses common metrics used by Keep Texas Beautiful such as estimated weights for bags. If you want to ensure you data is more accurate, you may consider using a luggage scale or fish scale that can readily be purchased online or at a sporting goods store.

Is there a deadline to report my data?2023-02-08T19:00:49+00:00

Yes, all cleanup data must be reported/entered within 30 days of the end of the Clean-up Challenge.

Is there a deadline to sign-on?2023-02-08T19:00:04+00:00

Yes, communities wanting to officially participate should sign-on by the date posted in on the website. This date is typically 30 days after the Clean-up Challenge has started. However, the earlier you sign-on the more time there is to advertise your participation, plan events, and gather participants who are interested.

Can litter cleaned up by city staff in the course of their normal job duties (example: maintenance crews, Parks and Rec crews, etc.) be reported?2023-02-08T18:59:48+00:00

No, only activities that fall outside of normal job duties may count or those connected to volunteer events/activities.

Are there any requirements or restrictions around the kinds of events that qualify for the challenge?2023-02-08T18:59:24+00:00

Yes, there are some. The events should be any litter cleanup event that takes place outside at parks, in neighborhoods, along roadways/waterways, etc. Don’t forget that clean ups of Adopt-A-Spots can count too! Basically, if people or volunteers are outside cleaning up trash and litter…that counts!
