Lanesboro Borough Illegal Dumpsite Cleanup
April 25, 2015 @ 8:00 am - April 26, 2015 @ 5:00 pm
In partnership with Friends of the Starrucca Creek, and in conjunction with Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful, PEC will conduct an illegal dumpsite cleanup this weekend in Lanesboro Borough.
The event will focus on cleaning up illegally dumped trash, tires, and debris located along the Starrucca Creek from the Historical Starrucca Viaduct, down to the junction of the Susquehanna River, and along the D&H Rail Trail. Volunteers will meet along State Rd 1009 at the end of Lanesboro (heading towards Stevens Point) where the D&H Rail Trail intersects the road.
On the morning of the cleanup, volunteers will gather for registration and instructions. After registration, volunteers will be provided with work gloves, trash bags, and safety vests. When supplies are distributed and instructions have been provided, volunteers will begin the cleanup. Free lunch and dinner will be provided to all participants. This is a rain or shine event.
Families, individuals, scouting groups, 4H groups, environmental clubs, businesses, college and university clubs, and high school students are invited to be part of this effort. (Anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian or have a parent/guardian sign a registration/insurance form prior to the cleanup and bring it with them. Anyone over 18 can sign the insurance form the day of the event.)
