Every year, thousands of volunteers come together to improve the quality of life in their community during the Great American Cleanup. From March through November, Keep Cincinnati Beautiful provides cleanup supplies and logistical support for a wide variety of cleanup and beautification projects. To get involved, you can organize your own cleanup event or you can volunteer for an existing project. Our 2016 Great American Cleanup is wrapped up, but many events are already in the works for 2017. Check back often for updates and additions!


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 register online. Only registered communities will receive cleanup supplies and support from us.


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!
