Join Keep America Beautiful's Great American Cleanup ™
Keep Montgomery County Beautiful invites you to participate in the area's largest volunteer litter cleanup event - the Great American Cleanup, created by Keep America Beautiful. The Great American Cleanup takes place from March 1 to May 31 every year and involves volunteers and organizations across the Miami Valley.
What You Can Do to Help
You can participate in a local cleanup. Every year, we partner with the Dayton Dragons baseball team to organize a large-scale cleanup. Visit the Dayton Dragons event page for the event date and more information. Five Rivers MetroParks also hosts an Adopt-A-Park cleanup on Earth Day.
If you would like to organize your own cleanup and you already have an area in mind to clean (park, road, alley, neighborhood, playground, vacant lot, etc.), we can get you the supplies and resources you need to make it a success.
How We Can Help
Help with Supplies
We provide trash bags from our national sponsor Glad®, gloves, and (possibly) free litter disposal at our facilities. We also have two cleanup supply trailers available on a first-come, first-served basis for groups of ten or more people. Get More Information by visiting the Community Pride Cleanup Supply Trailer page.
Help with Planning
We can provide assistance in planning your event. We have announcement posters and event planning tips, and we can sometimes assist with picking up the trash bags. We can help make your event a success.
Help with Recognition
We have thank-you promotions and special events for our litter cleanup groups.
