[ARCHIVED] Litter Blitz - DPW&T Partners with SHA

Prince George’s County’s Department of Public Works and Transportation Partners with the State Highway Administration for a County-wide Litter Blitz

LARGO, MD- As spring arrives, Prince George’s County’s Department of Public Works and Transportation (DPW&T) is preparing to do some spring cleaning.  DPW&T will partner with the State Highway Administration (SHA) on Monday, March 15, 2021 for the kickoff of the County-wide Litter Blitz. The Litter Blitz will focus on removing litter and illegal signs from the County-maintained primary roadways as well as state-maintained roadways.

With winter hopefully behind us, DPW&T will concentrate resources to the primary and collector roads in the County in an effort to continue to eradicate litter. “DPW&T looks forward to working with SHA in this concentrated effort to remove litter from our roadways,” said DPW&T Director Terry L. Bellamy. “The Litter Blitz is just the beginning of what will be a concerted, sustained effort to ensure that roads throughout Prince George’s County are clean, attractive, and litter-free.”

Motorists are advised to stay alert and be aware of trucks and crews working on the roadways.  They are also reminded to drive safely and slow down as they approach a work zone. Residents can partner in the cleanup efforts by not contributing to litter and illegal dumping, and by picking up litter in and around their residential neighborhoods.  

To report litter or illegal signs, which is another form of litter, on County-maintained roadways, please call Prince George’s CountyClick 311 at 3-1-1 or 301-883-4748 from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. Monday - Friday; or you may submit your service request online at www.countyclick311.com.
