Citizens Against Litter

Who are we?

We are people of all ages. We are a loosely connected group of Pittsburgh residents and merchants who are passionate about picking up litter in our neighborhoods. We are involved in the Redd Up Pittsburgh movement.

Active since March 2005, our band of volunteers is making a big impact. Streets, gutters, sidewalks, grassy places and alleys are cleaner. We started in Shadyside, but our reach goes far beyond Walnut Street. What we accomplish here can be replicated in other neighborhoods throughout Pittsburgh.

Glitter around town: Lincoln Road clean up

Lincoln Road clean up

February 15, 2007: Several illegal dumpsites along Lincoln Road in the Lincoln-Lemington neighborhood were recently tackled. Neighbors from nearby Penn Hills, Allegheny Cleanways, and Valvoline contributed to the effort.

If a picture's worth a thousand words, then we have a lot to say. Check back often, or visit our photo collection for more pictures of litter, and, when things go right, maybe even some glitter.

Submissions encouraged
