DEP, PennDOT Team Up To Urge PA Residents To Pitch In And Join The ‘Pick Up Pennsylvania’ Spring-Cleaning Effort

(FOX 43) The Pennsylvania Departments of Environmental Protection and Transportation are teaming up to encourage Pennsylvania residents, local leaders, businesses and organizations to join the “Pick Up Pennsylvania” spring cleaning campaign, which runs through May 31.

“Pick Up Pennsylvania” is a year-long initiative, the departments said. But events scheduled from March 1 through May 31 receive free trash bags, gloves and safety vests provided by support from DEP, PennDOT and Keep America Beautiful, as supplies last.

Events may include litter cleanups, illegal dump cleanups, community greening and beautification, special collections and litter education events, the departments said.

Events must be registered at to receive free cleanup supplies.

To support their efforts, DEP and the Pennsylvania Waste Industries Association sponsor no- or low-cost trash disposal at participating landfills for registered events during the month of April.
