Trash Travels – Still Time to Participate in the 2018 Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful International Coastal Cleanup

(October 9, 2018) – The health of our planet is dependent upon the health of our oceans.  Help our oceans by cleaning up your corner of the planet and participate in the International Coastal Cleanup. The 2018 International Coastal Cleanup runs through October. Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful invites residents, civic organizations and businesses to coordinate a cleanup or join an existing cleanup as part of the initiative.  All cleanup sites, land or water, are eligible. A significant portion of waterway pollution originates on land. When it rains, trash on sidewalks and streets accumulates in the gutter and is swept into storm drains. Most storm drain systems discharge directly into the nearest creek or river, eventually flowing to the ocean taking all the trash with it.
