Litter and Mowing Blitz
As you may know, Prince George’s County initiated the County-wide Litter and Mowing Blitz initiative to tackle the problem of litter in our communities.
The Department of Public Works and Transportation (DPW&T) has been taking strides to solve this unprecedented issue by focusing on quadrupling litter collection, mowing, edging, and street sweeping.
We increased litter and debris removal from weekly to twice a week in all nine county council districts. In addition, DPW&T crews and contractors conducted a litter-blitz of primary collector roadways throughout the County. We conducted street sweeping, guardrail maintenance, litter pick-up, and mowing on heavily littered County roadways as well.
In all, DPW&T encourages residents to not litter in the first place, and to please remember to report all litter and illegal dumping to PGC311.com.
