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: 2010 Bob Award

2010 Bob Award

April 1, 2011: Greenfield received the "Neighborhood of the Year" Bob Award at the Clean Pittsburgh Commission's recent "Meet 'n' Greet" event, which is held yearly at the warming house in Schenley Park. Congratulations to all of the winners, and thank you to the countless others who work to keep our streets clean every day.

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
