Akron, Ohio, May 10, 2022 — Today, Mayor Horrigan and Keep Akron Beautiful (KAB) have announced an Akron Community Cleanup happening on Saturday, June 4, 2022 from 9am-12pm in several locations throughout Akron. Volunteers can sign up here for a scheduled cleanup, and KAB staff will be on hand with maps, grabbers, and gloves to assign volunteers to their specific areas. Each check-in location will also have a community champion for the area including councilmembers and ward residents who have volunteered to host the cleanup. Check-in begins at 8:30am.

This Akron Community Cleanup will provide residents with another opportunity to get involved. I want to thank KAB for all their help and several of our Akron City councilmembers and residents for stepping up to host a cleanup in their ward.”
