PA Environment Digest – Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful Wednesday thanked the thousands of volunteers from all 67 counties in Pennsylvania participating in the 2016 Great American Cleanup of PA.
From March 1 through May 31, individuals, families, civic groups, schools, organizations and businesses came together for a common cause – a cleaner more beautiful Pennsylvania.
Events varied from litter and illegal dump cleanups to beautification projects, special collections, and educational events! These events rallied communities and set an example for others to follow.
Eleven townships in Northampton County joined forces to offer a combined electronics and scrap metal collection. Over 11,000 pounds of scrap metal and over 63,600 pounds of electronics were collected for proper disposal.
