CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Over 200 volunteers will be on the highway picking up litter at several of Cincinnati’s dirtiest entrance and exit ramps this Saturday, April 2nd.  

Keep Cincinnati Beautiful, together with Keep Ohio Beautiful, and the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) have teamed up once again to host the 2016 State Roadway Cleanup. 

Volunteers will collect upwards to 10,000 pounds of trash and debris from thirteen littered hot spots around the city, including areas along I-75 and I-71.

Volunteers will also be weeding, edging, and mulching at the Paddock Road entrance and exit to I-75.  

Event organizers say cleaning greenspace along the highway not only leaves a good impression on visitors and businesses, but beautified areas deter littering and increase economic development.

After registration, groups of volunteers will transport themselves to their assigned cleanup or beautification site.

Each team, armed with trash bags, gloves, and safety vests, will work alongside an ODOT crew member until their location is clean.
