Illegal Dumpsite Cleanups
October 28, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 1:30 pm
PEC is seeking volunteers to assist in the cleanup of two illegal dumpsites in Potter County:
10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
Hector Township along Loucks Mill Rd.
12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Bingham Township along Rowley Rd.
PEC will provide volunteers with gloves, bags, vests, snacks, drinks and lunch. We will also cover the costs of transportation, as well as disposal and/or recycling of all trash, scrap metal, and tires collected from the sites. To volunteer, or for additional information, please contact Program Coordinator Palmira Miller at 570-592-7876 or [email protected] to ensure enough food and supplies are available.
Since 2015, PEC has spearheaded, coordinated, conducted, and funded 112 illegal dumpsite cleanups within four Northern Pennsylvania counties. With help from partners and volunteers, the PEC Community Illegal Dumpsite Cleanup Program has eradicated 30 illegal dumpsites in Potter County, 52 in Susquehanna County, 15 in Wayne County, and 15 in Pike County. Funding for these projects was obtained via the settlement of a Department of Environmental Protection enforcement action.
