Push is on in city to clear hillsides of years of debris

Diana Nelson Jones talks hillside cleanup with DumpBuster Joe Divack, and the prognosis is simply staggering:

A 2009 assessment counted 300 dumpsites in the region, most of them in ravines, but Mr. Divack said no one knows how many there really are.

"We've done several hundred with no end in sight," Mr. Divack said. "It's going to end up as a public-private partnership and it will take decades."

Want to get involved? The Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy, their their UrbanEco Stewards program, is offering a training session on March 1 and March 8 at REI.
