Citizens Against Litter

Who are we?

We are people of all ages. We are a loosely connected group of Pittsburgh residents and merchants who are passionate about picking up litter in our neighborhoods. We are involved in the Redd Up Pittsburgh movement.

Active since March 2005, our band of volunteers is making a big impact. Streets, gutters, sidewalks, grassy places and alleys are cleaner. We started in Shadyside, but our reach goes far beyond Walnut Street. What we accomplish here can be replicated in other neighborhoods throughout Pittsburgh.

Glitter around town: Middle Hill 2010 Fall Redd Up

Middle Hill 2010 Fall Redd Up

October 16, 2010: 31 Pitt students were joined by 10 volunteers from Macedonia Church. They collected 110 bags of garbage and 30 tires.

If a picture's worth a thousand words, then we have a lot to say. Check back often, or visit our photo collection for more pictures of litter, and, when things go right, maybe even some glitter.

Submissions encouraged

Stepping up

A bit of good news for a change. Several citizen-led efforts to spruce up neighborhood steps are underway, as reported by Diana Nelson Jones. Our steps are a unique piece of who we are, and we are glad to see efforts such as these that will serve to keep them as part of our daily lives.
