Shane Pallotta and Nicholas Gibson, former members of the Plum football team, pick up litter along Davidson Road during Plum Clean-Up Day April 23, 2016, held in celebration of Earth Day.

Volunteers are wanted for the fourth annual Plum Community Clean-Up Day.

The event is 8:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. Saturday in celebration of Earth Day.

Residents, civic groups, church groups and businesses are encouraged to help make the borough free of debris.

Assistant borough manager Dave Soboslay said about 100 people participated in last year’s cleanup efforts.

“We’re just trying to make Plum a better place to live and work,” Soboslay said. “We have heavily traveled roadways and they need cleaned.”

Participants will meet at the public works facility at 2001 Old Mine Road, where they will be assigned various sections of Plum to clean. A continental breakfast will be available for volunteers starting at 8 a.m.

The borough also provides gloves, bags and vests.

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.
