The county launched Clean Sweep, a new anti-litter initiative designed to kick litter to the curb

Clean Sweep


Clean Sweep was initiated October 2015 as a coordinated inter-agency led effort to clean up communities in the Anacostia River Watershed and TNI Areas. 

Your community or municipality is being asked to join the Department of the Environment in the fight for a Litter Free Prince George's County by participating in Clean Sweep Fall 2016 that begins on October 1st and runs through October 29th
