Altoona Part of Keep PA Beautiful Survey

In 2019, Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful commissioned Burns & McDonnell to document how much it costs nine Pennsylvania cities, varying in size and location across the Commonwealth, to manage litter and illegal dumping. Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful released results to the public this month. The study found that Altoona, and eight other cities, collectively spend more than $68 million annually on cleanup, education, enforcement, and prevention efforts to address litter and illegal dumping.
