2022 Litter Summit
The 2022 Litter Summit, held in partnership with PA Department of Environmental Protection and PA Department of Transportation, November 1 and 2 at the Holiday Inn in the City of Lancaster, will serve as a follow-up to the recently released Litter Action Plan. The Litter Summit will provide state agencies and participating stakeholders an opportunity to convene and reflect on the work of the past year, share and learn about progress made towards specific recommendations, promote new initiatives, celebrate our collective successes and attract new allies in our shared commitment to prevent litter. The Litter Summit will bring us all together to network with peers and leverage our shared experiences to do more in 2023!
