Citizens Against Litter

Neighborhood Redd Ups in full swing; largest turnout will be Earth Day weekend April 19-22

Hundreds of volunteers, many of them Duquesne University students, take to the streets on the South Side and Hill District Saturday, April 13 to remove everyday litter and trash in the annual Spring Earth Day Redd Up April 19, 20 and 21. Other communities are also involved on this kickoff weekend.

Citizens Against Litter expects upwards of 10,000 volunteers to participate in Pittsburgh neighborhoods and communities in Allegheny, Beaver, Butler, Washington and Westmoreland counties the next weekend. "We know of 200 communities and groups that are committed," said Boris Weinstein. "We believe there are many more cleanups we don't know about."
