Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful Encourages Municipalities to Participate in Pick Up Pennsylvania

Participate in Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful’s PICK UP PENNSYLVANIA program from March 1 through May 31 and make a difference in your municipalities and neighborhoods. You can help by picking up any litter that you encounter along roadways, neighborhood streets, parks and trials or by organizing a cleanup of larger items that have been dumped illegally in shared public spaces. Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful partners with the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PA DEP) and PennDOT to provide free trash bags, gloves and safety vests to registered participants, as supplies last. The PA DEP and Pennsylvania Waste Industries Association sponsors trash disposal, free or at a reduced cost, from April 1 through April 30. During this time, registered participants are eligible to take their trash to participating landfills with prior approval. Additional community improvement events can include community greening and beautification, special collections and anti-littering education events.

Register at Questions can be answered by Michelle Dunn, Pick Up Pennsylvania Program Coordinator, at 877-772-3673 ext. 113 or

Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful recommends following all federal, state and local health and safety guidelines for Novel Coronavirus (Covid 19) in effect at the time of the event, including masking and social distancing.
