Penn Hills group to host last litter pick-up event of the year
The Penn Hills Anti-Litter Group will host its fifth and last litter pickup event of the year in November.
The group will pick up trash along Duff and Frankstown roads from 9 to 11 a.m. Nov. 3. Participants are asked to meet at the Penn Hills Government Center at 102 Duff Road.
Gloves, vests and garbage bags will be provided. To RSVP, visit the group’s Facebook page or email PHAntiLitterGroup@gmail.com.
So far this year, Faith Milazzo, the group’s founder, estimates the group has picked up about 160 bags of trash and around 20 bags of recyclables, plus many tires. Last year, the group collected 100 bags of trash and 25 bags of recyclables, she said.
The group also participated in the municipality’s Earth Day litter pickup event, when a group of five collected about 20 bags of trash.
