Lehigh County To Take Out The Trash This Saturday

Last time this happened, it took me nearly two weeks to find my Jeep. But I'll try to forget that and report that the fourth annual “Pick It Up Lehigh County!” will be held this Saturday in Alburtis, Bethlehem, Catasauqua, Coopersburg, Coplay, Emmaus, Upper Milford, Lower Milford, Lower Macungie and Macungie.

1. Emmaus and Upper Milford are expecting several hundred volunteers. They are meeting at 8:30 a.m. at Emmaus Community Park at Shimersville Road and S. 14th Street.

2. Lower Milford Township is expecting close to 100 volunteers. They are meeting even earlier, at 8 a.m., at the township building at 7607 Chestnut Hill Church Road.

3. Macungie is expecting 50 Boy Scouts to volunteer. Whatever you do, don't tell SEIU. They are meeting at 9 a.m. at the train station on Main Street in the borough as well as the Macungie Fire Co.

4. Catasauqua volunteers are meeting at 9 a.m. at Canal and Union streets.

Doesn't one of these places have a keg?

Sponsors include the U.S. Census, Capital Blue Cross, PP&L, TD Bank, Embassy Bank, UGI, Physical Graffiti Tees, Coca Cola, Nestle Waters, LV Convention and Visitors Bureau, KNBT Bank, Just Born, Wegmans and Home Depot. PennDOT is providing gloves, trash bags and vests.

What happened to Allentown's involvement? This doesn't make sense. Allentown has a department of solid waste. Volunteers who pick up trash are a good thing. Why wasn't something coordinated for Allentown?
