Keeping Pennsylvania Beautiful
By Rep. Lynda Schlegel Culver (R-Northumberland/Snyder)
Each year, March marks the official beginning of spring. This year, I’m encouraging residents of the 108th District to expand their spring cleaning rituals to include the outdoors by focusing on our roads and recreational areas in need of some sprucing. You can do this by participating in the 2017 Great American Cleanup of Pennsylvania, which is a statewide initiative running through May 31, sponsored by Keep America Beautiful.
Registration is now open to groups that wish to organize a wide range of beautification projects, from litter cleanups, to illegal dump sites, and special collections and educational events. Registered cleanup events can get free trash bags, gloves and safety vests from PennDOT district offices, while supplies last. To register, visit www.gacofpa.org.
In addition to the Great American Cleanup of PA, there will also be "Pick It Up PA Days," from April 18-May 8, which are sponsored by the Department of Environmental Protection, Pennsylvania Waste Industries Association and participating landfills. During these days, events registered for the Great American Cleanup of PA will have access to reduced or free disposals.
We are fortunate to live in a state filled with such natural beauty. Our portion of Penn’s Woods is a great place to enjoy the outdoors – from the Susquehanna River, to our bountiful fields and forests – there is much in which to be proud. Please join me in doing our part to help keep our region beautiful for residents and guests to enjoy.
Visit www.gacofpa.org for more tools and information, if you are interested in organizing a team of your own. Contact my district office in Sunbury by calling 570-286-5885, or toll free at 1-800-924-9060, for assistance with any state-related issue, as my staff and I always are happy to help.
