The Solid Waste District launched the Clean Up Cuyahoga program to provide litter cleanup supplies for groups to use year-round. We hope these kits will encourage youth to improve their environment by cleaning up their neighborhood or school, and helps youth develop and encourage civic pride.
An adult representative of a school or youth group interested in performing a service learning project may request a Clean Up Cuyahoga kit. The service project should involve cleaning up areas around a school, park or other public space.
The kits are designed for groups of up to 30 youth. If the clean-up will involve a large group or multiple classrooms, additional supplies may be requested.
Clean-up supplies include recycling bags, garbage bags, cloth gloves, car litter bags, seed packets, educational materials and promotional items.
Eligible groups include:
* K-12 schools
* clubs and after school programs
* environmental clubs
* university-sponsored clubs
* organized youth groups
* youth programs of 501(c) 3s or 501(c) 6s
* scout troops
* city recreation center programs
