Pocono Community Caring Company
Pocono 3C was created on June 17, 2019. The Waste Authority, Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau, and Street2Feet created this program to help our neighbors while also helping the environment. Their main goal is to help those who are homeless, at risk of being homeless, and those who have difficulty finding work. They work three days a week cleaning up litter along Monroe County roadways. In return, they receive money, experience, and references for their resume. The Waste Authority provides transportation to and from each work location and supervises the employees by using a Waste Authority Police Officer. The Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau funds the programs and publicizes all the amazing work they do. Street2Feet chooses the employees, and becomes the employee’s direct employer.
Participants are assigned to the Waste Authority to complete the Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition (A.R.D) or community service program. They remove litter from Monroe County roadways to complete their obligation.
Keep Northeastern PA Beautiful
The Waste Authority is a proud sponsor of the Keep Northeastern Pennsylvania Beautiful Campaign. Keep Northeastern PA Beautiful covers six counties: Lackawanna, Luzerne, Monroe, Pike, Susquehanna, and Wyoming. The primary focus is to create clean public places, reduce waste, increase recycling, generate a positive impact on local economies, and inspire our volunteers to be environmental stewards.
