Litter Reduction Program seeks to establish partnerships with individuals, non-profits, and municipalities and develop programs that will increase the tonnage of litter captured, removed and prevented in communities and waterways in Prince George’s County. Partnerships and programs include:
Prince George's County ADOPT-A-STREAM To help reduce litter in and around County stream, rivers and other local waterways, DoE encourages residents, businesses, civic organizations and academic institutions to adopt-a-stream. There are many benefits to adopting a stream segment including enhancing the aesthetics of our natural resources, removing pollutants, improving habitat and water quality for aquatic plants and animals. Adopt-a-Stream groups can also survey their stream section and notify DoE of pollution and illegal dumping. View the Prince George's County Adopt-A-Steam Map.
Trash capture devices that will increase capacity to remove litter in waterways with ability to have volunteer groups maintain such devices
The Sustainable Initiatives Division also offers the Comprehensive Community Cleanup, Volunteer Community Cleanup and Stormdrain Stenciling programs to HOAs and civic associations, municipalities, schools and other entities. Use the provided links to learn more about these programs.
