Keep PA Beautiful, DCED Host June 13 Webinar On How Your Community Can ‘Fight Dirty’ - A Review Of Anti-Littering Media Assets, Tools And Resources

Join representatives from
Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful and the Department of Community and Economic Development for a free webinar on June 13 to learn how Pennsylvania’s new anti-littering campaign-- PA Fights Dirty: Every Litter Bit Matters-- can be used in your community to change behaviors and keep your community clean.

The free webinar will be held from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m. and is open to the public and tailored to Pennsylvania municipalities, counties and community improvement groups, including cleanup coordinators.

Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful will provide background on litter and the impacts of littering in Pennsylvania, highlighting results of recent research, the Pennsylvania Litter Research Study and The Cost of Littering and Illegal Dumping in Pennsylvania.  Read more here.

The Department of Community & Economic Development will present the anti-littering campaign and how to use the materials in the PA Fights Dirty Toolkit, including examples of local activations, to spread an anti-littering message, change behaviors locally and keep communities clean.  

The goal of PA Fights Dirty: Every Litter Bit Matters is to educate Pennsylvanians on situational littering, such as leaving trash on the ground next to a full can or in a stadium, and to remind Pennsylvanians that litter of all sizes adds up and creates problems.

The webinar is made possible by funding from the Department of Environmental Protection.
