Registration is open for the 2012 Great American Cleanup of PA, which is held to encourage volunteers to clean up unsightly litter and trash, according to Westmoreland Cleanways.
The event will run from March 1 through May 31. Registered event coordinators can get free trash bags, gloves and safety vests from Westmoreland Cleanways or PennDOT district offices.
Coordinators must register to qualify for free cleanup supplies. Residents who schedule cleanups from April 21 through May 7 will qualify for free trash disposal at any participating landfill, which includes Allied Waste Greenridge Landfill in East Huntingdon, Allied Waste Greenridge Landfill in Penn Township, and Sanitary Landfill in Rostraver.
Cleanup participants may choose to tackle other projects such as tree plantings, recycling collections, educational programs or other beautification projects.
