Keep PA Beautiful: Sign Ups Start Jan. 15 For Great American Cleanup Of PA

On January 11, Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful announced groups can start registering their local cleanup events as part of the 2019 Great American Cleanup of PA on January 15.  The event runs from March 1 to May 31.
Last year 108,638 volunteers participated in 5,362 events picking up over 5 million pounds of trash.
Events can be litter cleanups, illegal dump cleanups, beautification projects, special collections, and education events and must be registered to receive free cleanup supplies that include free trash bags, gloves, and safety vests from PennDOT district offices, while supplies last.
As part of this event, the Department of Environmental Protection and PA Waste Industries Association are sponsoring Let’s Pick It Up PA – Everyday from April 13 through May 6.
During this time, trash collected at registered events can be taken to participating landfills free or for a reduced cost with prior approval.
Groups, individuals and local governments anticipate the annual initiative as a way to rally volunteers, reduce cleanup costs and be connected to a larger movement.
To register or for more information, visit the 2019 Great American Cleanup of PA webpage. Questions should be directed to Michelle Dunn, Great American Cleanup of PA Program Coordinator, at 1-877-772-3673 ext. 113 or send email to:
