2014 Litter Clean-Up

On Sunday, April 27 from 10 am to 2 pm the Squirrel Hill Litter Patrol held its annual community cleanup.   The Litter Patrol, part of the Squirrel Hill Urban Coalition, has hosted a yearly neighborhood cleanup for several years, and organizers saw a record turnout.  The event offered a fantastic opportunity for residents to make a tangible difference in the community by collecting trash and recyclables along the Forbes and Murray business corridors and surrounding blocks.

The Litter Patrol encourages volunteers of all ages to attend, welcoming organized volunteer groups as well as individuals and families.  Cleanup headquarters were at the corner of Forbes and Murray beneath the Carnegie Library Squirrel Hill branch.  SHUC provided all necessary tools and supplies along with light refreshments, and suggested specific cleanup areas to participants at the registration table.  Participants were able to meet and take pictures with Murray, the SHUC and Litter Patrol mascot.

If you are interested in attending in the future, particularly if you are planning to register an organized group of volunteers, please contact Barb Grover at bdgrover1@verizon.net or Michael Jehn at michaeljehn@gmail.com.
