Schuylkill Scrub

The Schuylkill Scrub takes place from March 1- May 31st annually. 

The Schuylkill Action Network coordinates the initiative but gives credit to the many partners with the common goal to clean as many miles of road, stream, and parkland in the Schuylkill watershed. Their efforts will help prevent trash from making its way into our drinking water sources and keep our land and waters clean, litter-free, and beautiful. 

The Schuylkill Scrub is a part of the Pick Up Pennsylvania initiative, working towards the larger goal of cleaning up and beautifying the entire state of Pennsylvania through our partner, Keep PA Beautiful. 

Schuylkill CleanSweep is a smartphone app and website dashboard designed to engage volunteers, report litter "hot spots,"  register events, record individual and group cleanup activity, and view cleanup statistics and photos throughout the watershed. To learn more about CleanSweep, click here.
