Trailer Program

Two Trailers Filled with Supplies to Help Community Members Complete Community Projects

Keep Akron Beautiful has two trailers that are available to the community to borrow and use for community projects.

The Community Pride Trailer (CPT) and Litter and Illegal Dump Cleanup Trailer (CPTL) are available through Keep Akron Beautiful (KAB) for loan to City of Akron residents and community volunteer groups free of charge. There is a minimum of five households or a group of five volunteers needed to be committed to the project to make the group eligible for use of the trailer.



The Community Pride Trailer is stocked with landscaping tools and cleanup supplies to assist residents with removing debris and clearing vacant lots in Akron’s neighborhoods.  The Litter & Illegal Dump Trailer is stocked with litter collection tools and cleanup supplies to assist residents with removing debris from Akron’s neighborhoods.

The trailers are booked on a first-come, first-served basis from April to October – weather permitting. Our crew drops off and picks up the trailer from the approved project site. A group can use one of the trailers for up to 3 days to complete their community project.

The Community Pride Trailer CPT was made possible through initial grants from: The Dominion Foundation and the Citizens Bank Foundation.

The Litter & Illegal Dump Trailer was made possible through a grant from the Citizens Bank Foundation.
