March 16-19
Join us for the Annual City-Wide Litter Index March 16-19. The litter index is used to grade the level of litter on a scale of 1 to 4. We use this data to target our cleanups for the coming season as well as to assess our progress. Participation requires volunteers to sit in a moving vehicle (van) while assessing litter on the streets and writing down the scores.

At the State Roadway Cleanup, we partner with the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT), the City of Norwood, and the City of Cincinnati Department of Public Services to pick up trash and debris from the most littered highways around Cincinnati. We will meet at the ODOT Garage at 1400 Seymour Ave. Teams are assigned cleanup locations and receive safety gear. Then, we carpool to those locations to pick up litter along the highway. Each team is accompanied by an ODOT crew member for safety. Afterward, we drive back to the ODOT Garage for lunch.
