Registration Open for Pick Up the Poconos Day
Volunteers needed for September 23rd region-wide litter cleanup.

August 23, 2023 – The Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau (PMVB) is seeking volunteers for its next region-wide litter pick-up day on Saturday, September 23, 2023, from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. (rain or shine). The bi-annual event is just one component of the PMVB’s overall “Pick Up the Poconos” campaign, which has resulted in nearly 34,000 bags of trash picked up.

Volunteer forms may be filled out at PickUpthePoconos.com. The deadline to register is Friday, September 15, 2023 at 5:00 p.m.

There are more than 20 pickup locations across Wayne, Pike, Monroe and Carbon counties from which volunteers can choose. The PMVB is currently working with the listed townships and boroughs to identify which roads need to be cleaned. Detailed information will be relayed to volunteers closer to the event date via the contact information shared on the sign-up form.

Please help spread the word by sharing the event on Facebook (HERE).

Thanks to PennDOT and Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful, the PMVB provides supply kits to each volunteer containing t-shirts, gloves, trash bags, safety vests and other supplies.
