PennDOT and the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) are seeking volunteers for this year’s Great American Cleanup of Pennsylvania effort that runs through May 31.
The statewide cleanup is an annual effort sponsored by PennDOT, DEP, Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful and other partners through which interested individuals and groups can create cleanup events. Groups involved in PennDOT’s Adopt-A-Highway (AAH) program, which involves volunteers cleaning roadsides year round, are also encouraged to participate in the cleanup.
In addition to the statewide cleanup, registered events have access to free disposal at participating landfills during “Pick it Up PA Days” from April 12 to May 5.
PennDOT provides gloves, trash bags and safety vests to AAH and Great American Cleanup of PA groups with funding from DEP’s Solid Waste Abatement Fund.
Interested individuals can find a listing of cleanup events, resources for organizing a cleanup and other information about the effort online at www.gacofpa.org.
