Great American Cleanup April 26

COVINGTON - Keep Covington Beautiful, in partnership with the City of Covington and the Center for Great Neighborhoods, wants residents and civic associations to get prepared to participate in the Great American Cleanup on April 26, 2014 from 9am - 12pm, followed by an after party at Goebel Park in Mainstrasse with lunch served. This is an annual citywide event where large numbers of volunteers work to clean up the City and improve its aesthetics through activities such as litter pick-up, landscaping, planting, trimming, weeding and painting. Many volunteers work on projects that are coordinated through their neighborhood association or directly through Keep Covington Beautiful.


Keep Covington Beautiful, Keep America Beautiful’s local chapter, provides resources and programs for Covington residents to help beautify neighborhoods and promote a greener city. This is accomplished through educational programs and volunteers events throughout the year that seek to clean and beautify our city. 



Great American Cleanup is the nation’s largest annual community improvement program that harnesses the power of over 4.5 million volunteers to build vibrant communities.  Each year over 1,200 affiliates and participating organizations engage volunteers to take action in their communities through programs that deliver positive and lasting impact through events focused on waste reduction, recycling, beautification and community greening.  In 2013, 4.5 million Great American Cleanup volunteers worked tirelessly to return nearly $175 million in measurable benefits in 21,000 communities across the country.
