Spring Redd Up participation, results higher; 18,000 volunteers' litter haul tops 400 tons

Reports from communities for area Redd Ups in March and April indicate Spring cleanups will attract 18,000 volunteers who will remove more than 400 tons of litter by the end of May. An estimated 300 known communities in Pittsburgh, Allegheny County and beyond participated.

Citizens Against Litter, one of the organizers of the event, reprojected numbers from an earlier forecast of 15,000 volunteers and 300 tons collected. "It's apparent that residents were anxious to get out and clean up their neighborhoods and roads after a hard winter," said Boris Weinstein.

Some of the reports are impressive:

Dates for the fall area Redd Up with Pitt Make a Difference Day student volunteers have been announced for October 17, 18 and 19.

Photos from some of the neighborhood events are available on the Citizens Against Litter Flickr page and the Squirrel Hill Urban Coalition Flickr page.
