Prince William County, Virginia (April 14, 2014) – Keep Prince William Beautiful (KPWB) is hosting its annual Route 1 Clean Sweep sponsored by CSX on Saturday, April 26, 2014. With the purpose of celebrating Earth Day and reducing the amount of litter throughout Prince William County, KPWB has partnered with numerous organizations within Prince William County including the Woodbridge Potomac Civic Association and Supervisor Frank Principi’s office. Volunteers typically remove about 1200 pounds of litter and recyclables from over 13 miles of roadside along the Route 1 Corridor.
In addition to the large Route 1 Cleanup, the Prince William County Department of Public Works will once again host a Dumpster Days’ for Woodbridge residents. Residents are encouraged to take part in organizing or participating in a community cleanup or simply utilizing the dumpster to remove clutter and debris from their yards and around their homes free of charge. The dumpster will be located at Featherstone Elementary School on May 3. To coordinate a cleanup for that date please contact KPWB.
Woodbridge residents are encouraged to contact the WPPCA (www.newwoodbridge.org) to volunteer, large groups and residents that live outside of the Woodbridge District should contact KPWB directly to register for this cleanup via email at [email protected] or visit www.kpwb.org/calendar/annual-route-1-clean-sweep/.
