Some of the programs we are working on:
Great American Cleanup of PA
Join Pennsylvanians across the state – and Americans across the nation – for the Great American Cleanup. You can participate in the 2017 Great American Cleanup of PA by cleaning up litter and trash along our roadsides, streams, beaches, parks, forests and neighborhoods. Additional events include holding recycling events for hard-to-dispose of items like tires and appliances, creating or enhancing green areas by planting plants, bulbs, and trees, removing or painting over graffiti that devalues your neighborhood, and other activities that help beautify your community.
During the Great American Cleanup of PA, which is from March 1st to May 31st, registered events can get free cleanup supplies such as bags, gloves and vests donated by PennDOT and Keep America Beautiful. If you are interested in coordinating a cleanup, register your project here and contact Erie County Sustainability Coordinator for help getting your supplies. Find local cleanups here.
KECB Advisory Committee
An Advisory Committee has been formed to advise Erie County on future projects for KECB. This advisory committee will have its first meeting on Thursday, May 4th at 9am in the Admiral Room of the Blasco Library. The Public is welcome to attend these meetings. Future quarterly meetings will be posted here.
So You Want to Hold A Clean-up
Holding a neighborhood litter or illegal dump clean-up can be challenging. We want to provide the resources you will need to succeed. Check out our resources.
Community Appearance Survey
As part of the affiliation process with Keep America Beautiful, a community appearance survey of Erie County must be completed. The purpose is to create a baseline of how littered our community is via a windshield survey, which is then used to determine priority areas for work. This survey was conducted on Tue, Oct 4th, 2016. Check out the Results.
