Helping DumpBusters remove trash and set a good example

May 18, 2021

Doug Clark and Sarah Van Horn of CEC Pittsburgh recently volunteered at the “DumpBuster” cleanup in Pittsburgh’s Homewood neighborhood, run by Allegheny Cleanways. Doug and Sarah joined a group of 14 volunteers to pull nearly 2,800 pounds of trash and 28 tires off a hillside near Westinghoue High School. The group plans to do a similar cleanup in Stowe Township, a suburb of Pittsburgh, next month.

DumpBusters is a dumpsite remediation program in which volunteers work in three-hour shifts to clean up illegal dumpsites four days a week year-round. The program works on vacant and city-owned properties in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, with the goal of removing all evidence of illegal dumping in order to prevent future dumping.
