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: Mr. Litterman recognized

Mr. Litterman recognized

April 22, 2014: Boris Weinstein was recognized by the City of Pittsburgh on April 22, 2014, "Boris Weinstein Day," for his work towards making Pittsburgh and the surrounding area a cleaner place to live. The full text of the proclamation can be read here.

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
