Organize A Great American Cleanup Event Community councils, schools, neighborhood agencies, and businesses from the City of Cincinnati, Hamilton County, and surrounding communities are invited to organize a neighborhood cleanup event anytime March through November. We no longer have a designated, city-wide cleanup day. If your organization would like to host a cleanup event, click here to get more information and register online. Only registered communities will receive cleanup supplies and support from us. REGISTRATION OFFICIALLY OPENS FEBRUARY 1, 2014.
Join An Existing Event The Great American Cleanup is open to volunteers of all ages! Our role is to help each participating community find the volunteers it needs to pick up litter, plant flowers, paint buildings, clean illegal dumpsites, landscape, remove graffiti, and more! You can sign up to volunteer by clicking here, but first – you may want to take a look at our list of upcoming events to see what neighborhood events are planned when you’re available. Click here for a list of GAC events organized by date. If you don’t see your neighborhood listed, check back periodically or give us a call.
If you need extra help placing a group of volunteers, feel free to call our volunteer coordinator, Brooke Lehenbauer, at (513) 352-4385.
