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.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
