SPOGOMI is a completely new sport originating in Japan that adds the essence of "sports" to the traditional garbage pick-up that companies and organizations engage in, transforming conventional social service activities into "competitions".

Invented in 2008 by the representative of Social Sports Initiative, Mamitsuka Kenichi, under the slogan,

Trash pickup is a sport!
