Pick It Up! Program logo

"Pick it Up!" is a litter campaign in which the City of Bloomington furnishes FREE special blue trash bags to individuals, organizations, and businesses to pick up litter in their neighborhoods. This is an ongoing program throughout the year!


It's as easy as 1 - 2 - 3!


1. Register and pick up free bags at the HAND Office, City Hall, 401 N Morton St, Suite 130, between 8:00 am and 5:00 pm. Monday through Friday.


2. Pick up litter on the streets of your neighborhood using your "Pick it Up" bags.


3. For individuals:  Leave the "Pick it Up" bag(s) out on your regular trash pick up day, on the ground next to your trash cart. For groups with litter patrols:  Contact Angela Van Rooy at or 812-349-3505 to make arrangements for disposal of the bags.


This program is not designed for household trash, bulky items, or yard waste. All trash must be enclosed in the bags and be free from rips and tears
