An anti-littering group in Penn Hills will meet Saturday to pick up trash along Old William Penn Highway near the Jefferson Road intersection.

Volunteers are asked to meet at 9:30 a.m. at U.S. Film Crew, 4090 Old William Penn Highway. The event was postponed in June, which led to the July 14 makeup date, said Mary Cvetan, an event organizer.

Penn Hills Anti-Litter Group is hosting the event, which is expected to end around noon.

“Join the friendly volunteers of Penn Hills Anti-Litter Group,” says the group's Facebook event. “We provide the orange vests, gloves and garbage bags. You provide an hour or two of help. Bring a friend!”

Participants are encouraged to RSVP by emailing PHAntiLitterGroup@gmail.com or by joining the event on Facebook.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com 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.
