The Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau (PMVB) is seeking volunteers for its next region-wide litter pick-up day on Saturday, September 24, 2022, from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. (rain or shine). The bi-annual event is just one component of the PMVB’s overall “Pick Up the Poconos” campaign, which has resulted in at least 24,056 bags of trash being picked up and properly disposed of.
Anyone interested in helping the cause should sign up on PickUpThePoconos.com. The deadline to register is Monday, September 12, 2022, by 5 p.m. Please help spread the word by sharing the event on Facebook (HERE).
There are nearly 30 locations across Wayne, Pike, Monroe, and Carbon counties for volunteers to choose from. The PMVB is currently working with the listed townships and boroughs to identify which roads need to be cleaned. Detailed information will be relayed to volunteers closer to the event date via the contact information shared on the sign-up form.
Thanks to PennDOT and Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful, the PMVB provides supply kits to each volunteer containing gloves, trash bags, safety vests and trash grabbers.
