Registration is open for Pick Up Pennsylvania


Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful has announced that registration is open for the 2020 Pick Up Pennsylvania, an initiative supporting the Great American Cleanup. The annual event runs through May 31.

During this period, registered events can get free trash bags, gloves, and safety vests donated by the Department of Environmental Protection, PennDOT and Keep America Beautiful, as supplies last.

Events can include litter cleanups, illegal dump cleanups, community greening and beautification, special collections and education events and must be registered at to receive free cleanup supplies.

As part of this event, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection and Pennsylvania Waste Industries Association are sponsoring free or reduced cost trash disposal for registered program participants at participating landfills from April 1 through April 30, with prior approval.
