The Sentinel – To prevent litter from ending up in the commonwealth’s waterways, Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful urges Pennsylvania residents to participate in Pick Up Pennsylvania, in support of the Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup. This annual event is an opportunity to improve neighborhoods and Pennsylvania’s waterways by coordinating or participating in a litter cleanup.
Registration is now open at https://www.keeppabeautiful.org/programs/pick-up-pa
This year’s program runs from Sept. 1 through Nov. 30. During this period, registered events can get free trash bags and gloves provided by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, PennDOT and the Ocean Conservancy, as supplies last.
