Individuals and neighborhood groups will be participating to clear trash and other debris from streets, sidewalks and vacant lots, in the event sponsored by the Great American Cleanup and McKeesport Mayor Mike Cherepko.
The event begins at 10 a.m. at various locations in the city and continues until 2 p.m. Bags, gloves and safety vests will be provided for volunteers, a spokesperson said, and lunch will be served to any neighborhood groups that registered in advance.
