GREENSBURG — Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful invites local residents, organizations, civic groups, and businesses to commit to litter free communities by joining its Statewide Adoption Program.

The program is an option for most types of local areas, such as municipal roads, communities, parks, neighborhood blocks, greenways, waterways and trails. School grounds are eligible for adoption through the Litter Free School Zone program also offered by Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful.

There is no fee to participate and Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful provides up to two recognition signs per adoption. The support of the local municipality or maintainer of the property is required before an adoption can happen.

Groups must agree to make safety a top priority, schedule two cleanups per year and report results to Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful after each cleanup.

For more information visit or call Stephanie Larson at 724-836-4121, extension 104. For information about adopting a state maintained road, visit the PA Department of Transportation Highway Beautification homepage at
