Welcome to Cache In Trash Out
In Trash Out is an ongoing environmental initiative supported by the worldwide geocaching
community. Since 2002, geocachers around the world have been dedicated to improving
parks and other cache-friendly places. Through these volunteer efforts, we help
preserve the natural beauty of our outdoor resources!
Geocachers around the world celebrate International Cache In Trash Out weekend annually
by hosting and participating in Cache In Trash Out Events in their local area. Events
might be focused on litter clean-up, removal of invasive species, revegetation efforts
or building trails. Together, we make an enormous positive impact. Did we mention
that we also have a bit of fun while we're at it?
The 12th Annual Cache In Trash Out Weekend is scheduled for April 26 and 27, 2014.
CITO on every hunt
Cache In Trash Out doesn't just happen once a year. It can easily happen on every
geocache adventure. Bring a trash bag along with you on your walks in the woods
and pick up the occasional piece of trash you see on the trail. Even this small
act can make a huge difference.
CITO as a large one-day or weekend event
You can organize a larger undertaking and accomplish much more with the help of
other people. Contact a land manager or local organization and work with them to
determine the needs of the community. These can be scheduled any time of the year
that works for your location. Always be sure to seek permission before cleaning
up any areas that may be on private property.
