Monroeville still accepting registrations for weekend cleanup day
The Monroeville Recreation Department is still accepting registrations for the Jack Sedlak 23rd Annual Cleanup Day.
The event will take place on sidewalks, road sides, parks and other public areas throughout Monroeville on April 21 from 9 to 11 a.m.
Joe Sedlak, the municipality's open records officer and human resources director, said 360 people have signed up to participate.
“Hopefully we can get up to over 400 by this weekend,” he said.
The event was named after Joe's father, a former Monroeville councilman who strived for a cleaner community, who died of cancer in 1995.
Following the event, participants are invited to a picnic at Monroeville Community Park West.
PennDOT supplies bags, gloves and vests for participants. No children are allowed to participate near main roads in the community and are urged to clean parks or other safe areas. To register, call 412-856-1006.
