Yuengling Cleans Up Local Waterways for Earth Day

On Friday 4/16, D.G. Yuengling & Son, Inc, America’s Oldest Brewery®, partnered with the Schuylkill Headwaters Association to clean up along local waterways in honor of Earth Day. 

The event, rescheduled from last year due to the pandemic, marks the first partnership between the brewery and the association.

The 35 volunteers, including 20 brewery employees, gathered trash and debris throughout the morning and early afternoon, cleaning up the areas surrounding Yuengling's Mill Creek brewery up to the Schuylkill River. 

A true team effort, volunteers were able to collect approximately seven tons of trash in about 2.5 hours! 

As a member of the Schuylkill County for over 190 years, Yuengling was thrilled to give back and show its support for the local community through the event, as well as kick off the celebration of Earth Day on April 22nd.
