(The Valley Ledger) Through a partnership between Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful, D.G. Yuengling & Son, Inc. and Keep America Beautiful, Route 209 in Pottsville received extra care and attention by way of a roadway cleanup project.

On April 12, Yuengling employees and their family members met at Francis E. Lubinsky Park to sign in and receive supplies of bags, gloves and safety vests. As part of Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful’s Pick Up Pennsylvania community improvement program, Yuengling volunteers were shuttled to pick up trash along the Route 209 and Schuylkill River corridor leading into Port Carbon.

All told, 3,070 pounds of beverage and food containers, stray paper items, cigarette butts, glass bottles, tires and other litter commonly found along roads and public spaces were bagged within a span of two hours. The cleanup event highlights Yuengling’s ongoing commitment to caring for our local communities and sustainability.
