Our First Annual Trail Cleaning.

The Great Pennsylvania Cleanup is part of the national Great American Cleanup from March 1st through May 31st. Pennsylvania's focus day is Saturday, April 19th. Communities are being asked to organize and conduct local cleanups - recruit volunteers, promote your event, and report your results for inclusion in statewide and national cleanup totals. The theme of the cleanup is "Let's Pick It Up, PA!" Business and trade organizations, state government agencies, environmental and civic organizations, and many others, have all volunteered to assist local communities with conducting successful cleanups.
PennDOT's regional and county offices will provide free supplies, including gloves, safety vests and trash bags to registered cleanup groups.
Members of the Pennsylvania Waste Industries Association and other landfill owners have graciously donated landfill space for trash collected during the cleanup. Everyone who registers an event for the Great PA Cleanup will have access to a list of services and supplies available in their area.
Environmental and civic groups will provide answers and assistance in organizing and preparing your cleanup.
