Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful’s Pick Up Pennsylvania Program can help you make a difference in your own community. Pick Up Pennsylvania is a statewide cleanup program that supports the Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup.
Cleanups registered with the program receive free trash bags, gloves and safety vests provided by the Department of Environmental Protection, PennDOT, Keep America Beautiful, GLAD Products Company and the Ocean Conservancy, as supplies last.
