The Penn Hills Anti-Litter Group will host its fifth and last litter pickup event of the year in November.

The group will pick up trash along Duff and Frankstown roads from 9 to 11 a.m. Nov. 3. Participants are asked to meet at the Penn Hills Government Center at 102 Duff Road.

Gloves, vests and garbage bags will be provided. To RSVP, visit the group’s Facebook page or email PHAntiLitterGroup@gmail.com.

So far this year, Faith Milazzo, the group’s founder, estimates the group has picked up about 160 bags of trash and around 20 bags of recyclables, plus many tires. Last year, the group collected 100 bags of trash and 25 bags of recyclables, she said.

The group also participated in the municipality’s Earth Day litter pickup event, when a group of five collected about 20 bags of trash.

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.
