Earth Day Events Successful Despite Rain


Wilkinsburg celebrated Earth Day by taking part in a multi-municipal cleanup on Saturday April 24. A group of residents and participants in the CISP program were assisted by Borough DPW employees in cleaning up Rebecca Avenue from Swissvale to Ardmore as well as the corner of Franklin and Swissvale. The youth from CISP were a big help and over 40 bags of garbage were removed from the streets.

Whitney Park neighbors came out in force to clean up the park as they do every year. About 30 residents came out to lend a hand in cleaning up the park. They
raked leaves, trimmed branches, weeded the flower beds, distributed mulch
and wood chips, cleaned the parking lot, cleaned the basketball court, and
power washed the playground equipment. See below for photos of their work.
