Thank you for volunteering with us at our Earth Day clean-ups in 2016. Together, we cleaned-up and beautified 13 parks and green spaces throughout Abington township.
Our 243 volunteers picked up 678 pounds of litter and planted 759 trees and flowers. Cleanups are a great way to bring your community together and make a difference in
your neighborhood. It adds up too! We count how much litter we pick up and report
to the Great American Cleanup of PA. Throughout Pennsylvania last year, 140,000 volunteers picked up over 6 million pounds of trash, and planted over 22,000 trees
and flowers. What a difference! For event details, click on this Earth Day link.
Thanks to Commissioners Jimmy DiPlacido, Tom Hecker,
Carol Gillespie, Ben Sanchez and others for cleaning-up!
