CHAMBERS AND SCOUTS HELP CLEAN UP WESTERN PENNSYLVANIA

 CHAMBERS AND SCOUTS HELP CLEAN UP WESTERN PENNSYLVANIA
 PITTSBURGH, June 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Chambers Development Company and more than 5,000 western Pennsylvania Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts and Explorers will descend upon western Pennsylvania Saturday, June 6, to collect tons of refuse during the "Scouts for a Clean Community" spring cleanup project, it was announced today.
 Scouts from Allegheny, Beaver, Fayette, Greene, Washington and Westmoreland counties will spend the day cleaning up their communities.
 Chambers is providing 10 collection vehicles and supporting personnel, and free landfill disposal for the cleanup effort.
 "We are very proud to be a part of this day with the Scouts," said John G. Rangos Sr., Chambers' president and CEO. "The Boy Scouts of America have helped to form the fabric of our nation's youth for more than 80 years. This effort demonstrates how committed we are to preserving our planet for future generations and shows the values of educating our youth in protecting the environment."
 The Scout units will select their own projects such as cleaning up litter from vacant lots, parks, playgrounds, roadsides and median strips.
 Trash bags have been distributed to the participating units. However, each unit is providing its own tools: brooms, rakes and shovels.
 All participants will receive individual clean community patches that are in three colors - red, white and blue. Each will also receive a service ribbon, and for their hard work all the scouts will be rewarded with free tickets to watch the Pittsburgh Pirates take on the Philadelphia Phillies at Three Rivers Stadium on June 16.
 The cleanup day is being co-sponsored by Chambers, along with the Allegheny Trails Council of the Boy Scouts of America.
 Chambers Development Company, Inc. (AMEX: CDVB), headquartered in Pittsburgh, is a leading environmental firm offering services in landfill and transfer station development and recycling, as well as the collection, transportation and disposal of residential, commercial, non-hazardous industrial and medical solid wastes.
