What we'll doHelp pick up litter and beautify Cincinnati’s dirtiest roadways
Who can do itAnyone 16+

Every year, thousands of volunteers come together to improve the quality of life in their community during the Great American Cleanup. Clean and beautified highways welcome visitors and encourage residents and businesses to live, work, and play in Cincinnati. Hundreds of volunteers pick up litter and beautify Cincinnati’s dirtiest roadways in our annual Spring Roadway Cleanup.

We partner with the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) and the city of Cincinnati’s Department of Public Services (DPS) and volunteers to pick up trash and debris from the sides of the most traveled highways around Cincinnati. Here’s how it works: We all meet at a centralized location to rally before the event (ODOT Garage at 1400 Seymour Ave). Teams are assigned cleanup locations and receive safety gear. Then we carpool to those locations to pick up litter and clear overgrowth along the roadway. Each team is accompanied by an Ohio Department of Transportation or Department of Public Services crew member.

I've helped KCB in the past with cleaning up these dump sites. Blows my mind that someone would trash a neighborhood like that. Hope you are prosecuting these people.

This time of year it’s easy to see all of the trash along the roadways. It’s crazy to think about what will happen to all of that garbage if people don’t clean it up.

This is terrible! I live in Pierce Twp And I see trash on the side of road all over. What is wrong with people. No respect! They throw trash in our yard constantly!

Yup. I've seen it happen in Northside, along Kirby Ave... all over.

Yeah KCB!
