Help clean up for G-20!


Allegheny County Executive Dan Onorato and Pittsburgh Mayor Luke Ravenstahl are calling on residents to volunteer and help with a series of cleanup and beautification projects on Sat., Sept. 12, in preparation for the G-20 Summit and thousands of guests from around the world.

“The Pittsburgh Summit is an opportunity for us to make a stunning first and lasting impression on visitors from around the world,” said Onorato. “We‟ve identified key transportation corridors and other locations for cleanup and beautification. Now, we‟re calling on at least 1,400 volunteers to help us with the G-20 Cleanup on Saturday, September 12. There are projects throughout the county, and I encourage residents to come out and pitch in.”

“The success of this massive cleanup, which will spot-clean key corridors and destinations, is dependent on Pittsburghers lending a hand to support the collaborative effort,” said Ravenstahl.

Interested individuals can volunteer by visiting and clicking on “Be a Volunteer” or by calling 412-471-2114. Volunteers should be at least 12 years old, and anyone under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Participants are asked to wear work clothes, sturdy closed-toe shoes and a hat. Work will take place rain or shine.
