Hundreds of volunteers will be working at dozens of site all over Covington! Join us at our spring and fall Great American Cleanup events as we pick up tons of trash, plant flowers and trees, spread mulch, paint, and more. 

This year we will be beautifying we held our spring event on Saturday April 30th and our next event will be Saturday October 22nd, 9am - noon.

Thanks to generous support from Rumpke, we are able to provide trash bags, gloves, grabbers, trash bag removal, tools, hand sanitizer and disinfectants, snacks, and a giveaway for every volunteer. Sites can also apply for up to $250 towards their beautification project.

Win $4000 for your neighborhood!

Whichever neighborhood picks up the most trash will be the recipient of our Perk Up the Neighborhood event! We're committing at least $4000, plus time, tools, and volunteers towards beautifying one neighborhood this year. We'll work with the winning neighborhood on how to use the investment, but the project might include tree plantings, neighborhood flower pots, public art, banners, or something else entirely. So register your GAC event and get your friends, family, and neighbors out to get that litter!
