Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful invites all elementary and secondary schools in Pennsylvania to participate in the Litter Free School Zone Program, a comprehensive program designed to teach lessons around recycling, litter awareness, and community stewardship.
The Program is intended to encourage students in grades K – 12 to keep their school grounds litter-free and to raise public awareness regarding litter via a Litter Free School Zone sign to be displayed outside the school.
“Students, clubs, classes, and even entire school districts can participate in the Litter Free School Zone program,” said Shannon Reiter, President of Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful. “Keeping their school litter-free is an easy and fun way for students to work together, learn valuable community leadership and responsibility skills, while gaining a respect for the environment and the world around them. It is also an opportunity to develop a school-wide stewardship ethic and set a community example.”
Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful also offers Tools for Schools, online tools and resources for educators and students regarding litter prevention, cleanups and recycling related activities to support the program.
The Litter Free School Zone Program is sponsored by the Department of Environment Protection.
