Refresh Montgomery Cleans Up County Roads During Earth Month

In April, the Division of Highway Services (DHS) kicked off its annual “Refresh Montgomery” program – an annual, two week, countywide litter pickup that focuses on areas with the most trash.

DHS’ efforts this year were supplemented by almost 400 volunteer groups under the Adopt A Road program who conduct roadside cleaning on a monthly basis. During March and April, volunteers conducted 85 clean ups and removed 643 bags (30 to 50 gallons each) of trash and debris from roadways.
