Keep PA Beautiful: Clean Earth Supports 2016 Great American Cleanup of PA

Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful Wednesday announced Clean Earth as their newest sponsor of the 2016 Great American Cleanup of PA, their annual signature event.
“It is our planet, our country, our Pennsylvania, our county, our town, our street, our home.  It is our responsibility to step up each and every day and especially our duty to show leadership and set the example during the Great American Cleanup,” stated Chris Dods, President and CEO, Clean Earth.
“Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful welcomes Clean Earth as the newest sponsor of the Great American Cleanup of PA. We are passionate about the positive benefits that working together will provide our local communities and environment. Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful is honored and grateful for the support of Clean Earth,” stated Shannon Reiter, President of Keep PA Beautiful.
The 2016 Great American Cleanup of PA runs through May 31st. During this period, registered events can get trash bags, gloves, and safety vests from PennDOT district offices, as supplies last. Events can be litter cleanups, illegal dump cleanups, beautification projects, special collections, and educational events.
As part of this event, the Department of Environmental Protection and the PA Waste Industries Association will sponsor Let’s Pick It Up PA – Everyday from April 16th- May 9th.  
During the Pick It Up PA Days, registered events will be able to take the trash collected during their cleanup to participating landfills for reduced cost or free disposal.
Since the inception of the Great American Cleanup of PA in 2004, over 1.8 million volunteers have picked up 86,578,947 million pounds of litter and waste and 236,743 tires from Pennsylvania’s landscape.
In addition, more than 149,371 trees, bulbs, and flowers have been planted.
