PR Newswire – The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) encourages all Pennsylvanians to participate in a local cleanup or beautification event as part of the Great American Cleanup of PA.
“Celebrate Earth Month by organizing or participating in a cleanup in your hometown,” DEP Acting Secretary John Quigley said. “Thanks to the thousands of volunteers who donate their time and efforts each year, every Pennsylvanian has great opportunity to make a big impact in communities across the state.”
Local cleanups are taking place in every county between now and May 31. Anyone can organize and register their cleanup event to receive free cleanup supplies such as bags, gloves and vests.
