Litter efforts continue yielding impressive results in the Poconos
The Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau (PMVB) is pleased to announce the 3rd annual Pick Up the Poconos Day will be held on Saturday, September 26, 2020. Originally launched in Monroe County, this year the event is being expanded to Wayne, Pike and Carbon counties. Volunteers are encouraged to sign up online to select the specific county and area they would like to clean.
Thanks to PennDOT and Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful, the PMVB provides all supplies including gloves, bags and trash grabbers. The volunteer signup deadline for Pick Up the Poconos Day is Saturday, September 12, 2020 at 5 p.m. Please help spread the word by sharing the event on Facebook.
“Since Pick Up the Poconos Day began, nearly 700 volunteers have removed 1,500 bags of trash from our roads,” said Chris Barrett, Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau President/CEO. “In a time when social distancing is important, this is a great way to make a positive impact in your community while enjoying the open-air with family and friends.”
