Ready to organize your own community clean up?

Each year between March 1 May 31 and September 1 November 30 during Pick Up Pennsylvania, registered events can get free cleanup supplies, such as bags, gloves and vests donated by the PA Department of Transportation (PennDOT), PA Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), and Keep America Beautiful.

Consider joining thousands of other Pennsylvanians in helping to pick up PA and reduce the amount of litter plaguing our communities.

If you decide to participate in a cleanup event, check out the following DEP and PennDOT-sponsored resources from Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful to ensure a successful and safe experience:

Steps for a Successful Cleanup

Guidelines for Illegal Dump Cleanups

Guidelines for Waterway Cleanups

If you see litter, pick it up!

Keep America Beautiful encourages everyone to take part in their 152 challenge and pick up 152 pieces of litter. Why 152? According to Keep America Beautiful’s 2020 National Litter Study, if everyone made the individual action of picking up 152 pieces of litter, our nation would be litter free!

This information was originally published as part of the Litter Action Plan by the PA Department of Environmental Protection.
