2019 Williamsport Cleanup Week

A city-wide litter cleanup is scheduled in Williamsport for Earth Day week, starting April 22, 2019 through April 28, 2019. 

Several partners are planning the activity, including Cleanscapes, a Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful affiliate; Newberry Community Partnership, Heart of Williamsport, Susquehanna Greenway Partnership, the city of Williamsport, and Lycoming County.

The goal is to sweep through public property, such as the Susquehanna Riverwalk, on both sides of the West Branch of the Susquehanna River, and other locations across the city to improve the environment, beautify the city, and engage citizens.

Volunteers will collect the trash using gloves, garbage bags, and wearing orange vests, all of which will be distributed by participating organizations.
