Join the Great American Cleanup of PA

MEET neighbors, LEARN something new, HELP your community!

MARCH 1st TO MAY 31st

Butler Township will once again be participating in the Great American Clean-up of PA.  The Pennsylvania event is held in conjunction with Keep America Beautiful’s Great American Clean-up.  The program will run from March 1st through May 31st.

Anyone interested in doing clean-up along any of the roadways in Butler Township can register by contacting the Township Administration Building at 724-283-3430, X 212 or email mlove@butlertwp.org. Just let us know your name, number of volunteers in your group, where you plan on doing the clean-up and the date of the clean-up.  The township will provide the gloves, safety vests and trash bags for your group.  Once the clean-up is done, please contact the township so that we can make arrangements to have the trash bags picked up.

All 67 counties in Pennsylvania were represented in the 2017 Great American Cleanup of PA by the 132,695 volunteers.  These volunteers collected over 5 million pounds of trash and properly disposed of over 20,000 tires.  They cleaned over 11,000 miles of roads, railroad tracks, trails, waterways, and shorelines. Volunteers also planted 16,437 trees, bulbs, and plants in an effort to keep Pennsylvania beautiful.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the event last year.
