The Community Pride Trailer (CPT) and Litter & Illegal Dump Trailer are now open for the season! You can register to rent any of these trailers to help with your cleanup events and to keep Akron beautiful! These trailers are available through KAB for City of Akron residents & community volunteer groups FREE of charge.
Each trailer serves a different purpose in our community, both with a positive end result! The CPT trailer is stocked with landscaping tools & cleanup supplies to assist residents with removing debris & clearing vacant lots in Akron’s neighborhoods. The Litter & Illegal Dump trailer is stocked with litter collection tools & cleanup supplies to assist residents with removing debris & clearing vacant lots.
This program is Keep Akron Beautiful’s attempt at spreading urban beautification beyond the downtown Flowerscapes by reviving vacant land so the abandoned lots become safe, appealing spaces where community gardens, playgrounds, and/or gathering green spaces can be developed by neighbors. Keep Akron Beautiful Litter Program Staff will deliver and pick-up the trailer to and from the designated location. The trailers are booked on a first come, first served basis April through October. Please check with Helen Dauka (firstname.lastname@example.org or 330.375.2116 option 5) at the KAB office for trailer(s) availability, or see booked dates on our website.
