Leaders for a Beautiful PA

Take the Pledge to be a Leader

Leaders for a Beautiful Pennsylvania showcases our legislators and other public officials that are “leading the way” in efforts to keep their communities beautiful.

This initiative encourages Leaders to participate or coordinate a local improvement project. An example of an improvement project can be:

  • Cleanup – through our Pick Up Pennsylvania Spring or Fall programs, Adoption program where you adopt a road, waterway, etc.
  • Beautification – working with your local community or park to plant trees or other landscaping or painting projects
  • Recycling – assisting with a local special recycling event, sharing information on recycling and more

Clean and beautiful communities are the foundation for an attractive, yet healthy community with a prospering economy. Since 1990 – 2,593,268 volunteers have:

  • picked up more than 148 million pounds of trash,
  • recycled more than 12 million pounds of electronics, and
  • properly disposed of more than 1 million tires.

Please join Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful and “Take the Pledge” to be a Leader for a Beautiful Pennsylvania. Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful provides program tools and resources to help you get started in organizing or participating in a successful local improvement project.
