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: Troy Hill 2010 Fall Redd Up

Troy Hill 2010 Fall Redd Up

October 16, 2010: Pitt students and community volunteers teamed up to clean every street in the neighborhood and built 10 raised bed gardens, complete with three truckloads of soil and mulch.

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.
