The Pennsylvania Lake Erie International Coastal Cleanup

This years cleanup was Saturday September 16th, 2017!

The PSA was again the site manager for the Walnut Creek Access area, Sam Zacour was the site coordinator. 

This year a group of 14 dedicated volunteers showed up and collected 8 bags of garbage totalling 60lbs. The groups pictured below show some of the cleanup crew! Thanks to all those who took the time to help cleanup our environment!


The PA Lake Erie International Coastal Cleanup is an annual trash cleanup event, held the 3rd Saturday in September along the Lake Erie shoreline and Erie County waterways.  Volunteers gather at one of the 17 different cleanup locations in Erie County between 9am and 12pm to pick up trash and collect information on each trash item.  Information gathered from collected trash and recyclables is used to develop and prioritize management strategies to lessen the amount of trash entering our waterways and provide outreach and education information for local schools and organizations throughout the county.

The event is part of a larger global effort that is held the same day each year titled the “International Coastal Cleanup” which is the oldest and largest volunteer driven cleanup effort of its kind across the world.  Beginning in 1986 with 12 sites on the Texas coastline, the International Coastal Cleanup has grown to over 6000 sites in 92 countries with more than 500,000 participating volunteers. 



Meetings are typically held at 7:30 pm on the 2nd Wednesday of each month. American Legion Post #773,  4109 West 12th Street, Erie, PA.

Enjoy your summer, the next meeting of the PSA is October 11th, 2017!
