Details

Come join us for our last highway cleanup of the year! Feel the good vibes that come from helping keep our community clean as you work alongside like-minded people.

We have two sections of Adopted Highway at the intersection of PA-222 & PA-30 that we pick litter from. This is our fourth year keeping this section clear! Gloves and safety vests will be provided to keep you safe. Extended grabbers available to save your back some strain. Garbage bags provided.

PLEASE READ ENTIRE DESCRIPTION AS CERTAIN RULES MUST BE FOLLOWED TO MEET PA DOT REQUIREMENTS!

WHERE TO MEET:

Stauffer Park, Lititz Pike, Lancaster, PA 17601. Lower parking lot at Marshall Ave entrance. Entrance drive is to the right of the softball field on Marshall Ave. directly across from a brick building with signs reading "Cargas" on the front of it. DO NOT NOT DRIVE TO THE INTERCHANGE!

DURATION:

We usually spend a little time organizing at the park then about two to three hours actually working on our two sections of highway.

WHAT TO BRING:

• Sturdy shoes. OPEN-TOED FOOTWEAR NOT ALLOWED.
• Ear plugs if you are sensitive to noise. There is lots of loud traffic.
• Long pants/outdoor work clothes. SHORTS NOT ALLOWED.
• Water for drinking
• Snacks if desired
• Bug spray
•Sunscreen

WHAT NOT TO BRING:

• Mp3 player/Headphones/Earbuds - Penn DOT rules prohibit us from listening to music while we're working at the intersection so we can be aware of our environment and traffic sounds, car horns, etc.
• Garbage bags. Litter gathering materials will be provided.

GAME PLAN:

• We'll meet at the park. New attendees will watch a short video.
• Condense down to as few cars as possible, so we don't have any more cars that needed at the site.
• Deploy safety flags and devices.
• Pick up trash
• Go home feeling much better about yourself!
