Welcome to the official home of WOA Plogga (Kerbside Cricket).
The rules are simple. You award a point for every piece of litter picked up from the kerbside/gutter and pavement. It can be played individually or with others.
If playing with someone else, you can either compete at the same time, choosing different sides of the same road or dividing your walk up into different sections.
The winner is the walker with the most points at the end of your walk.
If you’re really competitive, you can award different points based on the type of litter picked up. For example;
1 point for paper and cardboard, including newspapers, magazines, drink cartoons, boxes.
2 points for all/any type of polystyrene and empty cigarette packets
3 points for all/any type of plastic, including sweet wrappers, straws, bags and bottles.
4 points for Glass bottles and Aluminium/Tin Cans, including crushed cans (just please careful of sharp edges, broken glass).
5 points for items of clothing or fabric, including shoes, hats and face masks (only to be handled by those wearing gloves!).
6 points for batteries or other metal objects (e.g. screws, nails,).
You are responsible for your own safety, and that of others. You should wear gloves and ensure that the items you collect are disposed of in a safe and responsible manner.
