Community Improvement
Community Improvement is one of KAB's three pillars that encompass our mission of Improving Akron's quality of life through beautification and responsible environmental management.

Trailer programs

Trailers Filled with Supplies for Community Projects

KAB has two trailers that can be used by community members to complete community projects. 

The Community Pride Trailer is filled with supplies for any kind of project such as installing a new playground or preparing a community garden for the season. The Litter & Illegal Dump Trailer is filled with supplies for large litter cleanups. 

The trailers are free to use and can be rented for three days maximum. 

Our trailer program makes a huge difference in our community and has been made possible thanks to generous donors from Citizens Bank and Lowes of Fairlawn, OH!
