2023 Celebration!

 Saturday, April 22nd, 9 a.m. to 12 noon 

Lunch and activities hosted at the City Building plaza 12 noon to 2 p.m.

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 Doris Baden at 513.425.7750.  To be as safe, efficient, and prepared as possible, all volunteers should be signed up by April 14th. Groups should remain small with 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 Doris Baden 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. 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.
