MCDOT Sponsors Annual Litter Clean Up for Community Service Day

On October 24, MCDOT employees and community members participated in the annual “Dirty Roads and Delis” litter clean up. Staff selects a neighborhood around a deli that needs help with litter collection, and then pitch in to improve the appearance of the community. Removing trash also keeps it out of the County’s streams, improving water quality.

This year’s event was held at the Woodside Deli on Georgia Avenue in Silver Spring. Volunteers collected dozens of bags of trash from along Georgia Avenue, the alleys behind some commercial properties, and the close by residential neighborhood.
