Great American Cleanup  

April 28, 2018

Covington's largest annual volunteer day of service is the Great American Cleanup. We typically assemble around 1000 volunteers at over 25 sites who pick up over 5 tons of trash on just one Saturday morning! 

You can sign up as a group or an individual, you can manage your own site or join another. All volunteers receive a t-shirt and are invited for a free lunch at the after party. We also supply all the sites with trash bags, gloves, mulch, tools from the Tool Bank, and water. Each site is eligible to apply for a grant up to $250 for a beautification project.

The goal for the day is to work with your friends and neighbors and come away with a fresh outlook, pride in the community, and to have a whole lot of fun!

There are two ways to register:

1. Register as a site with volunteers. If you already know where you want to work and have a group to help you, register as a site and we'll provide you with resources. 

2. Register as a group or an individual that needs a site. Let us know what neighborhood or part of town you might want to work in and we'll connect you to an existing site. 

Once your site is registered, you can access the application form here to apply for up to $250 towards your beautification project. Don't wait! Winners will be selected by April 1.
