April is Earth Month, and the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection is urging state residents to join in on the "Pick It Up PA" campaign to keep the state free of litter.
Residents are asked to spend extra time this month picking up litter near their homes and workplaces.
“I believe we can make Pennsylvania a better place to live, work and play by taking the time to clean up litter around our homes, businesses and parks,” DEP Secretary Chris Abruzzo said. “So gather together a group to help pick it up, PA.”
Abruzzo and other DEP staff will clean up along the Susquehanna River in Harrisburg between Market and Forster streets on April 27, the DEP said.
