Volunteers Needed for Statewide Spring Cleaning

PENNDOT is seeking volunteers for this year’s Great American Cleanup of Pennsylvania effort that runs through May 31, according to Senator Pat Browne.

Interested individuals can find a listing of cleanup events, resources for organizing a cleanup and other information about the effort online at www.gacofpa.org. Groups interested in adopting a section of highway are encouraged to contact their local PENNDOT County Maintenance office and ask for the Adopt-A-Highway (AAH) coordinator, or visit www.dot.state.pa.us.

During last year’s Great American Cleanup, 6.7 million pounds of litter was collected from Pennsylvania’s roads, trails and shorelines by more than 141,000 volunteers. PENNDOT’s AAH program contributed nearly 78,000 volunteers who cleaned up nearly 53 percent of the collected litter from 10,960 miles of roadways.
