FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Keep PA Beautiful: Mahantango Enterprises Added As Great American Cleanup Of PA Sponsor

(January 11, 2018) – Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful announced today that Mahantango Enterprises, Inc. has pledged support for the 2018 Great American Cleanup of PA, a statewide community improvement initiative that runs from March 1 through May 31. Events registered with the initiative receive free cleanup supplies of gloves, bags and vests, as supplies last and access to free or reduced disposal.

The new sponsor, Mahantango Enterprises, is based in Liverpool, PA, and is a full service tire collector and recycler, turning scrap tires from a waste product to a valuable commodity by producing rubber products that are clean, consistent and high quality. The recycled tires are ground into rubber mulch, play turf, landscaping borders, athletic turf, and rubber asphalt roads, among other uses.

“My parents started this business in 1989, and their motto has always been “Clean Up America”! We cannot think of a better way to honor their commitment to our family business and the environment than by supporting this worthwhile initiative that enables thousands of Pennsylvania residents to improve our local communities,” expressed Denise Troyer, Treasurer, Mahantango Enterprises, Inc.    

“We are grateful for the support of Mahantango Enterprises. Our volunteers and sponsors are who help make the Great American Cleanup of PA, Pennsylvania’s premier community improvement initiative, possible. Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful and Mahantango Enterprises share the goal of clean communities. The Great American Cleanup empowers citizens to do that locally.” states Shannon Reiter, President of Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful.
