Green & Clean

About Green & Clean Day
On the first Friday of May each year, Downtown Akron is overrun with volunteers putting a deep clean on the Downtown footprint. Green & Clean projects focus on making a vibrant impact, going beyond the regular services of the Downtown Akron Partnership's Clean Team. The goal of the event is to engage the community in making our Downtown “vibrant and valuable.”  During the Downtown Green & Clean event business employees and community members form teams and do projects around their own Downtown property or are assigned tasks within the district. Each team member receives a t-shirt, goodie bag and a lunch celebration. 

Each year the Green Fair runs on the same day from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. with vendors showcasing environmentally friendly products and free samples. Click here for the Green Fair letter and registration.

Green & Clean Day is a part of Keep Akron Beautiful's Clean Up Akron Week/Great American Cleanup™

How to Volunteer
Morning or afternoon shifts are available (9 a.m-12 p.m. or 1-4 p.m). Teams benefit by taking ownership of the Downtown they use to work or play. Help DAP achieve its goal of showcasing the wide-range of support for a valuable and vibrant Downtown. Form a team of colleagues and sign up to help us keep our Downtown a destination for everyone.
