Keep Akron Beautiful is partnering with the Akron Marathon to assist with recycling for the second year! Last year, Keep Akron Beautiful in conjunction with the marathon secured recycling bins for the race. KAB staff worked with the volunteers to make sure participants and spectators are putting the right items into the recycling bins!
The Akron Marathon will be held on Saturday September 27, 2014 and is still in need of recycling volunteers for both the marathon and the Health and Fitness Expo. The expo will take place on Friday September 26, 2014 from 11:00 AM – 9:00 PM at the John S. Knight Center on 77 E Mill Street Akron, OH 44308. During the shift, the Recycle Steward will be responsible for monitoring and guiding placement of trash and recycle items into appropriate receptacles.
Here are the time slots that still need volunteers:
