CLEAN PITTSBURGH “REPORT CARD” REVEALS IMPRESSIVE ACCOMPLISHMENTS BY CITY RESIDENTS
Five years after challenging city residents and organizations to band together to clean up their community, the Clean Pittsburgh Commission (CPC) today issued its fifth “State of the City Report” as evidence that the challenge was accepted and tremendous progress made in the areas of litter, recycling, graffiti and neighborhood blight.
“The Clean Pittsburgh Commission vision for Pittsburgh is a city striving to be recognized as one of the cleanest and greenest cities in America,” said Boris Weinstein, CPC chairman and founder of Citizens Against Litter. “One could say removing litter is a thankless job because it comes right back, but CPC members know residents appreciate their efforts and the results.”
