Homegrown Litter Campaign
The Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau has started a campaign against roadside trash called #PickUpthePoconos. The website provides information on organizing a litter pluck, offers safety tips and resources as well as spelling out the consequences of littering.
The agency created a half dozen different designs of yard signs encouraging people not to litter. The weather-resistant signs are available to businesses and individuals who would like to promote the anti-litter campaign. Contact PMVB at 570-421-5791.
The PMVB also asks organizations that sponsor special litter pick-up programs to contact them to be included on PickUpThePoconos.com. The annual Pick Up the Poconos Days are in April and September eachyear.
