(December 18, 2018) – Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful congratulates local affiliate, Tri-County CleanWays for 25 years of keeping Pennsylvania Beautiful. The milestone was recently celebrated with many volunteers who have dedicated much of their free time to cleaning up illegal dumpsites and coordinating and working special collection events, some since the group’s inception in 1993. The local affiliate began as PA CleanWays of Lawrence County, providing services and expertise regarding dumpsite cleanups and proper disposal. The group later merged with PA CleanWays of Butler County and in 2011, changed its name to Tri-County CleanWays and extended their reach to include Mercer County. The three-county affiliate and its programs are housed and supported by Lawrence-Mercer Recycling/Solid Waste Department.
