Greiner to Host Second Roadway Cleanup
LAMPETER – Rep. Keith J. Greiner (R-Upper Leacock) is looking for volunteers to help clean up the roads in the Leola area to mark Earth Day.

“This is a simple way for residents to remove pollution from our roadways and show community pride,” said Greiner. “We are looking to enlist the help of individuals, families and teams for this event. Upper Leacock Township is going to look great when we are finished!”

This is the second Earth Day cleanup event for Greiner, as last year’s was such a success he is looking to make it an annual event. This year it will take place on Saturday, April 26, from 8 a.m. to noon. Volunteers will meet at the Leola Community Park. Greiner will provide coffee and donuts to participants, and PennDOT will supply gloves and trash bags.

Greiner noted that Earth Day is Tuesday, April 22, and that his cleanup event is taking place during a period when there are many opportunities in Lancaster County to remove litter from the environment.

“We have registered our event on the Great American Cleanup of Pennsylvania website, and we are expecting an impressive turnout,” said Greiner. “Seeing litter thoughtlessly cast along the roadways degrades the beauty our Lancaster County communities are known for, and that really bothers me. I encourage citizens to pick up litter anytime they see it, not just during large-scale events like this.”

Residents can register to participate by calling Greiner’s office at (717) 464-5285 or online at and
