Guidelines for a community cleanup.

KCB Cleanup Guidelines

  • It's not hard to organize a cleanup of a public area in Columbus.
  • You provide the volunteers. Keep Columbus Beautiful will provide trash bags and will loan, subject to availability, gloves and tools for your cleanup. 
  • Subject to availability, Keep Columbus Beautiful will provide recycling boxes, liners and lids for your recycling drive or clothes collection. 
  • Cleanups are for litter collection, NOT household cleanouts.  Cleanup activities are to take place in public areas.
  • If you should find  bulk refuse items  during your cleanup, please call 614-645-3111 immediately after your cleanup with the exact location and description (i.e., tires, appliances, etc.) of these items to arrange for collection.  NOTE:  Construction, remodeling and demolition waste cannot be collected by the Refuse Collection Division.
