2022 Celebration!

 Saturday, April 23rd, 8 a.m. to 12 noon 

It’s that time of year again! Keep Middletown Beautiful and City staff are coordinating volunteers with neighborhoods to continue the successful series of annual projects and neighborhood clean ups in Middletown.

In past years, several neighborhoods have seen major work such as professional tree trimming and removal, painting and planting. The 2022 Earth Day/Arbor Day event will focus on cleaning up city wide; neighborhood by neighborhood litter and sign painting, landscape projects, and general clean up in several parks as well as the City Building area, local school lots and the banks of the Great Miami River. 

If you are a resident or business interested in tackling your neighborhood, please sign-up here or contact Jeff Michel at 513.425.7750 or email To be as safe, efficient, and prepared as possible we ask that all volunteers are signed up by April 14th. We ask that groups remain small, 6-10 people maximum with an assigned leader to coordinate with event organizers. 

Gloves and garbage bags will be given to volunteers sign in at the Rathman Building the day of the event or online.  Dump trucks and dumpsters will be in strategic locations and volunteers will coordinate with City staff to have trash bags collected as they work. 

Children 14 and under must be accompanied with parent or guardian.

Groups may organize before the day of the event to clean up anywhere throughout the greater Middletown area. Please contact executive director Jeff Michel at 513.425.7750 or email by April 14th. Please have volunteer registration sheets filled out for participating. We encourage groups to take photos of the day’s events along with group photos and ask that they be sent to We also ask that groups tally the total number of volunteers and roughly how many hours they all worked and send them to the above email as well.
