– After receiving continued complaints regarding the garbage and litter being left on the sides of the road in Monroe County, Rep. Rosemary Brown (R-Monroe/Pike) will be hosting a Community Clean-Up Day on Thursday, Oct. 29, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Masks are required and social distancing measures will be followed.
“Several entities and organizations have taken on this issue for our community, various townships and, most notably, the Pocono Mountain Visitors Bureau,” said Brown. “While their work has made a huge impact and it is greatly admired, the issue persists. We all need to do our part to keep our area clean. Our office receives a strong volume of complaints from residents and I am always looking to address the district’s issues through action, legislation and collaboration. This is a great opportunity for our community to safely come together, clean up our area, and show our pride in where we reside.”
All safety materials and supplies will be provided by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.
For those interested in volunteering for this event, please call Brown’s district office at 570-420-8301.
Brown’s Community Clean-Up event is a part of the Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful initiative. Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful is the result of two organizations with similar missions joining together to achieve a common vision, a clean and beautiful Pennsylvania. It is the state affiliate of Keep America Beautiful Inc., the nation’s largest volunteer-based community action and education organization.
