RESOURCES

Tool Bank

The Tool Bank is designed to keep Memphis a clean and litter-free city by loaning tools such as rakes, shovels, brooms and trash bags to groups holding cleanups.

By utilizing these resources, organizations eliminate the expense of purchasing tools for their neighborhood cleanups. This is another way that Memphis City Beautiful continues to work to increase community responsibility and involvement in our beautification and environmental efforts. 

Memphis City Beautiful also provides tools and supplies for use in working in a community garden or for clearing overgrowth. In addition to the cleanup tools, we also have garden rakes, saws, pipe and spade shovels, post hole diggers, loppers/clippers, and a variety of hand gardening tools. 

There is no fee for the use of tools as long as they are returned in good condition.  

Please fill out the form below at least two weeks before your cleanup or project. Someone will contact you to confirm your request. If your event is less than two weeks away, please call Memphis City Beautiful at (901) 636-4410 for verification.
