May 3: DumpBusters in Brookline

The hillside beneath Edgebrook Ave in Brookline was described in 1981 as the "Junk Yard Capital of the City" in a Pittsburgh Press Article.  Allegheny CleanWays DumpBusters faced that challenge and have been steadily chipping away at the hundreds of tires in this dump site since November 2013.  More than 2,500 tires have been removed from the beautiful wooded ravine!

This Saturday they need your help.  DumpBusters are switching gears and addressing the remaining trash. We need as many hands as we can get to eliminate the other debris in the ravine, to restore the area to its natural state.

10 a.m. - 1 p.m., starting from 1928 Edgebrook Ave, Brookline, Pittsburgh 15226.  Long pants and sturdy close-toed shoes are required. Long sleeved shirts are recommended.  Water, first aid kits, gloves, and tools will be provided.  A light pizza lunch will follow afterwards.  For location and parking details, and to register:

Thanks for doing your part to keep our green spaces beautiful!
