Each year during the Great American Cleanup of PA, which lasts until May 31st, registered events can get free cleanup supplies such as bags, gloves and vests donated by PennDOT, the Department of Environmental Protection, and Keep America Beautiful.

The Pocono Mountains VIsitors Bureau has started a campaign against roadside trash called #PickUpthePoconos. The website provides information on organizing a litter pluck, offers safety tips and resources as well as spelling out the consequences of littering.
The agency created a half dozen different designs of yard signs encouraging people not to litter. The weather-resistant signs are available to businesses and individuals who would like to promote the anti-litter campaign. Contact PMVB at 570-421-5791.
The PMVB also asks organizations that sponsor special litter pick-up programs to contact them to be included on PickUpThePoconos.com. The second annual Pick Up the Poconos Day is set for Sept. 28, 2019.
