The Squirrel Hill Litter Patrol invites neighbors and friends to the Squirrel Hill Spring Cleanup on April 14, from 9 AM to 1 PM. Meet other volunteers at the corner of Forbes and Murray avenues, in front of the Squirrel Hill library, where Litter Patrol members will provide grabbers, vests, and other tools for beautifying our streets. Murray the Squirrel will be on hand to show his support (and pose for photos, of course!) Coffee and snacks will be provided. Volunteers of all ages, including those with scout troops, school groups, or other organizations are welcome.

In years past, bottled water has been provided to Spring Cleanup volunteers. In reduce waste, volunteers are encouraged to bring their own reusable water bottles. Similarly, plastic bags will be available for litter collections, all volunteers are encouraged to bring previously used grocery or shopping bags.

If you are eager to start cleaning your streets now, please join the Litter Patrol’s Adopt-a-Block program. You can make a huge difference just by cleaning the area around your home or business on a weekly basis. For more information, follow the Squirrel Hill Litter Patrol on Facebook or write to
