Welcome to ‘Plogga’ (aka Kerbside Cricket).

The rules are simple. You award yourself a point for everything that you pick up from the pavement, kerbside/gutter and berm. If you’re really competitive, you can award different points based on the type of litter picked up (see below).

It can be played individually or with others. If playing with someone else, you can either compete at the same time, choose different sides of the same road or devide your walk up into different sections.

The winner of plogga is the person with the most points once you reach the end of your walk.

The points are awarded as follows;

1 point for paper, polystyrene and cardboard, including newspapers, magazines, drink cartoons, boxes.

2 points for all/any type of plastic, including sweet wrappers, straws, bags and bottles.

3 points for Glass bottles and Aluminium/Tin Cans, including crushed cans (just please careful of sharp edges, broken glass.

5 points for cigarette buds, batteries or other metal objects (e.g. screws, nails).
