2024 Pick Up the Poconos – Spring Cleanup


Registration Open for Pick Up the Poconos Spring Cleanup
Volunteers needed for region-wide effort on Saturday, April 20

March 7, 2024 – Celebrate Earth Day early this year by spending time caring for the environment. The Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau (PMVB) is seeking volunteers for its next region-wide litter pick-up day on Saturday, April 20, 2024, from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. (rain or shine). The Pick Up the Poconos Spring Cleanup is just one component of the PMVB’s “Pick Up the Poconos” campaign, which has resulted in nearly 38,000 bags of trash being picked up and properly disposed of.

Individuals and groups interested in helping the cause can fill out the Volunteer Form or Group Sign-Up Form located at PickUpthePoconos.com. The deadline to register is Wednesday, April 10, 2024, by 5:00 p.m.

There are nearly 20 participating locations across Wayne, Pike, Monroe, and Carbon counties for volunteers to choose from. Private cleanups led by various community groups are also planned in conjunction with this initiative. Volunteers will receive supply kits on the day of the event consisting of trash bags, gloves, safety vests, and other supplies.

After the cleanup, volunteers are invited to the annual Earth Day Celebration at Pocono Organics from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. for exclusive access to door prizes, complimentary refreshment vouchers, educational activities, and more. The event is hosted by Monroe County Waste Management Authority, Pocono Organics, and the Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau.
