In preparation for the 2017 Great American Cleanup Season, Keep Cincinnati Beautiful will be conducting it’s Annual City-Wide Litter Index throughout the city of Cincinnati the week of March 13th-16th.
The city-wide litter index is a tool used to help survey a sampling of the city and grade the level of litter on a scale of 1 to 4. They use this data to target our cleanups for the coming season as well as to assess our progress over the past few years. It’s a great way for us to strategically work to improve the quality of life for the neighborhoods plagued with the most litter. We hope you can join us!
The City-Wide Litter Index takes 4 days to complete. Participation in this activity requires volunteers to sit for long periods of time in a moving vehicle while assessing litter on the streets and writing down the scores. We will be driven around in a van, and a KCB staff member will lead the scoring.
The schedule is as follows:
- Monday, March 13th — Districts 1 and 5
- Tuesday, March 14th — District 2
- Wednesday, March 15th — District 3
- Thursday, March 16th — District 4
Each day, volunteers will meet at KCB offices at 9:00am.
On the road indexing until roughly 2 or 3pm (at the latest). Lunch will be provided, courtesy of KCB.
If you’d like to sign up to volunteer, please CLICK HERE. There is a maximum capacity for each day, so you will be contacted individually to confirm your participation, and more information will be provided the week prior to the index. Thank you!
