Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful’s Pick Up Pennsylvania program is in full swing, now through Nov. 30. Over 60,000 Pennsylvanian’s participated in the spring program.

Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful’s Pick Up Pennsylvania program is in full swing, now through Nov. 30, according to a release issued Wednesday by Stephanie Larson, program director for Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful.

The cleanup program is held in support of the Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup. Both waterway and land-based cleanups are eligible for the program since a significant portion of waterway pollution originates on land, according to the release. Wind and rain wash litter into storm drains or directly into creeks and rivers that eventually flow to the ocean where it impacts marine life, human health and coastal economies.
