PA CleanWays of Mifflin County was formed in 2001 with support from residents concerned about illegal dumping in the county.
PA CleanWays of Mifflin County participates in an annual friendly rivalry called the “Tire Wars” with three other KPB affiliates; Keep Huntingdon County Beautiful, Keep Juniata County Beautiful and Keep Perry County Beautiful. “Gold Rim Award” is given to the affiliate who collects the most tires at a specific collection event, helping to remove unsightly tires and mosquito breeding grounds from the landscape.
In 2021, while following CDC guidelines for Covid-19, Keep Perry County collected 590 tires and Keep Juniata County Beautiful collected 1,193 tires. Keep Huntingdon County Beautiful won the “Gold Rim Award” by collecting 1,650 tires and PA CleanWays of Mifflin County won the “Flat Tire Award” by collecting 287! Winning or losing, every tire collected helps to keep our communities clean and beautiful!
