Thank you for volunteering with us at our Earth Day clean-ups in 2015. Together, we cleaned-up and beautified 18 parks and green spaces throughout Abington township. Our 244 volunteers picked up 1455 pounds of litter and planted 439 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!

Thanks to Commissioners Larry Jones, Jimmy DiPlacido, Tom Hecker, Lori Schreiber, and Carol Gillespie for cleaning-up!
