Our Story

Clean Up Cincy (CUC) is Cincinnati's largest student-led beautification program. Founded in January 2015 by a small group of motivated UC students, CUC has grown from 350 to over 1,000 volunteers each semester.

Our Mission

We strive to engage and impassion every student and resident alike in the effort to keep Cincinnati safe and clean. Each spring and fall semester, we have our volunteers travel to work sites around the Cincinnati area to pick up trash on the streets.

Our Vision

We seek to inspire a sense of pride and accountability for keeping the city beautiful by taking the time to pick up trash, serve in other sustainability efforts, and invite others to do the same.
