Great Harrisburg Litter Cleanup

The Great Harrisburg Litter Cleanup is an initiative of Tri County Community Action, the affiliate organization for Keep Harrisburg/Dauphin County Beautiful.

We believe effective and sustainable change starts and ends with the involvement of the entire community, which is why we need your help. Let's unite as a community to make Harrisburg a cleaner and safer place to live, work, and play.
