Pittsburgh Garbage Olympics

Volunteer Here: Garbage Olympics on Sept. 26

Help clean up trash in your neighborhood this weekend

by Lindsay Patross | September 21, 2020

We had one of the founders of the Garbage Olympics, Alicia Carberry, as a guest on our podcast earlier this year. She is one of the founders of the Garbage Olympics. The 2020 Garbage Olympics take place on Sept. 26 and you can help make a difference in your neighborhood.  Volunteers are needed to help clean up litter for 2 hours on Saturday morning.

Each neighborhood will be organized into teams, and team captains will report the results from the 2 hour cleanup to the Clean Pittsburgh Commission for final scores and judging.
