Community Cleanup Volunteers can help EPCAMR beautify areas negatively impacted by illegal dumping! Contact us to learn about current opportunities throughout the Anthracite Region of NEPA.

Tasks you can help with include:

1) Be a volunteer! If an event is happening near you, attend and help us cleanup a community affected by illegal dumping. Volunteers are always given free lunch and refreshments.

2) Have a site you think needs a cleanup? Nominate it! Contact us and tell us about a location you feel should be cleaned up. We're always looking to help new communities!

3) If you can't donate your time, donate items! Cleanups require trash bags, gloves, and other items. If you can't donate items, but know someone who can help with dumpster fees or other costs, let us know! Any help is appreciated!

4) Spread the word! Share our events through email or social media. Getting the word out is always helpful for cleanup events!
