Cache 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!
For the past 13 years, geocachers around the world have celebrated International Cache In Trash Out weekend annually by hosting and participating in Cache In Trash Out Events in their local area. This year, we're extending the CITO celebration to two entire weeks. CITO Week 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?
CITO on every hunt
Cache In Trash Out doesn't just happen twice a year. It can easily happen on every geocache adventure. Take 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.
This event is being held in conjunction with the
Keep Victoria Beautiful Adopt a Roadside Program.
Keep Victoria Beautiful Adopt a Roadside program aims to reduce litter on Victoria's roadsides to stop pollutants from entering local waterways, improves the quality of vegetation, and prevents soil degradation and erosion. It also promotes civic responsibility, community pride and fellowship.
Adopt a roadside volunteers
Adopt a Roadside volunteers help remove roadside litter and/or undertake revegetation works including the removal of weeds within Victoria's arterial road network in regional Victoria.
To ensure volunteers are equipped to do their job, KVB provides:
Public liability and personal injury insurance.
Permission from VicRoads to carry out volunteer work on the roadside.
