Register Now For The Pick Up Pennsylvania Community Improvement Program

(The Meadville Tribune) Are you ready to “fight dirty”? Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful has announced that registration is open for Pick Up Pennsylvania, an annual community improvement program.

Pick Up Pennsylvania is a year-long initiative. However, events scheduled from March 1 through May 31 receive free trash bags, gloves and safety vests provided by support from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, and Keep America Beautiful, as supplies last. Events can include litter cleanups, illegal dump cleanups, community greening and beautification, special collections and education events. Events must be registered at to receive free cleanup supplies.

As part of this event, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection and Pennsylvania Waste Industries Association are sponsoring trash disposal, free of charge or at a reduced rate for registered program participants, at participating landfills from April 1 through 30, with prior approval.

Want to fight dirty in your community but not sure where to start? Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful is hosting a community wide cleanup training webinar on Monday from noon to 1 p.m. The training will include technical support for organizing a community-wide cleanup by mobilizing local volunteers, gaining support from local business, coordinating trash disposal, accessing supplies and more!
