Great American Clean Up of PA
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. 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 2016 Great American Cleanup of PA. Volunteers collected 5 million pounds of trash. They cleaned over 11,000 miles of roads, railroad tracks, trails, waterways, and shorelines. Volunteers also planted 15,465 trees, bulbs, and plants in an effort to keep Pennsylvania beautiful.
Thank you to everyone from the township who participated in the event last year.
