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 Fall Redd Up

Troy Hill Fall Redd Up

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

Do you know of a trouble spot that you'd like to highlight? Snap a picture and mail it to us. Only by identifying the problem can we begin to solve it.

Illegal signs in Penn Hills are "overwhelming"

Officials in Penn Hills say they are unable to keep up with the removal and enforcement of state statutes prohibiting the unauthorized posting of signs on utility poles and other structures along roadways. Longtime readers of our website will remember similar problems that cropped up in the past in Overbrook and elsewhere. It's a fight that is never over.
