1. Litter Cleanup - Great American Cleanup®

At KAB, we typically participate in GAC during our annual Clean Up Akron Month (CUAM) every April.

Now through October, KAB is offering cleanup supplies for those who wish to help cleanup their neighborhoods on their own time – while following important safety guidelines. 

We will provide trash bags, gloves, hand sanitizer and litter grabbers (2 maximum) to groups who wish to help their community by picking up litter.

2. Beautification Watch Award Canvasser

BWA volunteers drive one of our pre-determined routes on their own time throughout the month of July and nominate homes and businesses for our Beautification Watch Award.

There are 45 routes that cover the entire City of Akron. Each route takes 2-4 hours to complete. Routes are only to be completed in the month of July and have to be turned in to KAB beginning of August. 

Beautification Watch Awards are our way of saying “thank you” to the homes and businesses that take pride in taking care of their property in the City of Akron.
