PA Environment Digest Blog – Keep PA Beautiful is now accepting registrations for local 2020 Pick Up Pennsylvania litter cleanup and beautiful events. This year’s program runs from September 1 through November 30. Registered events can get free trash bags, gloves, and safety vests provided by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, PennDOT and the Ocean Conservancy, as supplies last.
“Our spring cleanup program was cancelled due to the novel coronavirus (Covid-19), so your help is needed now more than ever,” said Shannon Reiter, President of Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful. “Though we can’t gather in large groups, we can still make a shared and cooperative effort to improve our communities by picking up litter.
“While this seems like a small effort when faced with such grave challenges, it is something that everybody can do. Individuals, families or small groups can safely support our communities by picking up litter,” said Reiter.
