Trash Running China is a social plogging group started in Shanghai: we focus on contributing to our society and environment while also being active. What we do: organize weekly runs in various locations, and we pick up the trash we see on the roads.

Our Regular weekday evening events are free of charge. For some of the weekend events we charge a small fee, usually for purchasing insurance and refreshments.

If you are in Shanghai, can join our weekly evening runs on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday. The meeting times and locations can be found both in Event page of this website and under “late activities” in the official account. We also post about our weekend events in the official account.

If you have any questions, can message us here! If you want to join our WeChat group chat, add Simba “simbalikesme” and add “TRC” to your message. 

Regular distance is 4-6 km, about one hour long. Find info about the meeting points and times both in Event page of this website and under “late activities” in the official account. We also post about our weekend events in the official account.

During the trash run, we focus on collecting recyclable waste, and avoid picking up any dangerous/harmful/heavy items. After the trash run, we separate the collected waste into recyclable and non-recyclable categories and dispose of it properly.
