Removal of Wreaths At The National Cemetery of the Alleghenies / 23 January 2021 / Cecil Township, PA


Jan 21


Good Evening All,

Received from NCOTA, Please share inviting all.

Good afternoon everyone, I hope everyone is healthy and happy.

Just a reminder, we will be having our Wreaths Across America (WAA) clean up on Saturday (1/23/21) starting at 8am. Please meet at the Public Information Center and please dress accordingly. Following the weather, they are talking about a polar vortex that is supposed to hit our area the later part of January.

Please pass the word around for those who can help. We will follow the same protocol we did last year.

Volunteers will gather up the wreaths and bring them to the side of the road.
The red ribbons will then be pulled off the wreaths and placed in the garbage bags provided. The ribbons and not recyclable and they get caught up in the shredder when the wreaths get shredded. This is to ensure that the wreaths get properly recycled.
The caretakers will drive around the cemetery and the volunteers will load up the Toro’s and trailers.
The caretakers will then drive to the maintenance yard where more volunteers will throw the wreaths into the dumpsters.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you for all you help and have a wonderful day!



Edward A. Hajduk
National Cemetery of the Alleghenies
