Keep PA Beautiful's Great American Cleanup Of PA Now Underway, Register Your Event, Volunteer For A Cleanup

The Great American Cleanup of PA is now officially underway and Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful is encouraging anyone who is planning a local event, large or small, to register with the Great American Cleanup of PA.  
“Cleaning up your neighborhood is one of the best investments you can make. Whether it’s cleaning up a vacant lot, roadway or common area, planting flowers or mulching a playground, all neighborhoods can be improved with a little effort and camaraderie,” said Shannon Reiter, President of Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful.
The 15th annual Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful Great American Cleanup of PA kicked off on March 1 and will run through May 31.
The program brings together thousands of Pennsylvania families, friends and communities who will pick up litter, clean illegal dumpsites, plant flowers or trees, join recycling efforts and education programs all geared towards the vision of a cleaner and more beautiful Pennsylvania.  
Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful partners with PennDOT, the Department of Environmental Protection and Keep America Beautiful to provide free trash bags, gloves and safety vests to registered participants, as supplies last.
During Let’s Pick It Up PA – Everyday from April 13th through May 6th, cleanups registered with the Great American Cleanup of PA are eligible to take their trash to participating landfills free of charge or for a reduced rate.  
“It’s always amazing to see the amount of energy that is created when neighbors join together to work on a project that benefits the whole community. The improvement is instant and the volunteers can see immediate results,” said Reiter.    
During the 2018 Great American Cleanup 108,638 volunteers were instrumental in cleaning up over 6.6 million pounds of trash.
