Saucon Valley Roadside Cleanup Planned for Saturday

(Saucon Source) If you’re tired of looking at roadside litter, an event in Saucon Valley this Saturday will offer an opportunity to do something about the problem.

The roadside cleanup organized by a local resident is part of Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful’s springtime Pick Up PA program, which supports and provides supplies to citizens who organize cleanups in their communities.

Organizer Kathy Pichel-McGovern said her goal is to recruit enough volunteers to tackle some of the most problematic areas for litter in the township, including the Saucon Rail Trail and the area around the Creekside Marketplace shopping center on Rt. 412 (Leithsville Road). “I am hoping to have a few groups to clean up a different areas of our township and its outskirts. The more the merrier!” she said in an email.

The clean-up is being held rain or shine and will be from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. Saturday, April 1.

Volunteers should meet at the Dimmick Park parking lot in Hellertown (across from the borough pool) to pick up supplies, which will include garbage bags, gloves and safety vests. For more information or to sign up, email Pichel-McGovern at
