Earth Day: Wolf Administration Encourages Pennsylvanians to “Pick It Up PA!”

Cleanup events taking place across Pennsylvania

In honor of Earth Day, Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) Acting Secretary Patrick McDonnell and Department of Transportation (PennDOT) Secretary Leslie S. Richards call on Pennsylvanians to “Pick it up, PA” and look for opportunities to participate in cleanup activities across the state.

“Everyone can make a difference when it comes to keeping Pennsylvania beautiful. There are events taking place all over the state, not just on Earth Day, but throughout the year to help pick up trash, plant trees, and clean up our neighborhoods,” said McDonnell. “It’s a great opportunity to get some dirt under your fingernails and make your own part of Pennsylvania more beautiful.”

The Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful website is constantly updating with cleanup activities for all ages at http://www.gacofpa.org/great-american-cleanup-of-pa-find-an-event/. Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful is sponsored by DEP and PennDOT.

“Litter detracts from the beauty and appeal of our wonderful state, and we simply count on many volunteers to step forward and help us with the ongoing challenge of cleaning up our roadsides,” Richards said. “We are very encouraged by the turnout of volunteers. Nearly 700 events have been registered thus far for the Pick-It-Up-PA campaign. We encourage you to visit GACoPA to find an event to join or register your own.”

For more information and cleanup locations, please visit http://www.gacofpa.org/great-american-cleanup-of-pa-find-an-event/ or follow Sec. McDonnell and Sec. Richards on Twitter at @SecMcDonnell and @SecRichards, and follow the hashtag #gacpa2017 to find events.

Anyone taking part in these or any other Earth Day events this week are encouraged to share photos and information using the hashtag #EarthDayPA.

EarthDay...what a crock. Big polluters severely pollute our formerly lovely state 365 days a year and we're supposed to ignore that!? LOOK at the post right above this one to see all of the local fracking violations. Lake Erie should be renamed Lake Gyphosate. We're surrounded by illegal nuke dumps & 6 nuclear reactors which have been deemed as dangerous as Fukishima before it blew. They refuse to allow communities to refuse fracking and constantly force new pipelines upon us while using the radioactive fracking fluid on our roads. Act 13 won't allow PA's physicians to tell is which fracking chemicals destroyed our and our children's health. So picking up trash for 1 day is supposed to make us feel all warm & fuzzy? I call bullspit. Several families I knew who used to vacation here in rural PA refuse to return because of the severe industry pollution. Earthday, huh?

How about getting rid of that stupid excessive gas tax you said would help fix the roads. All it does is send more money down state.
