Since its inception in the fall of 1997, the Litter Crew continues to make significant contributions to improving the aesthetic character of the County to help keep Prince William a Community of Choice! The Litter Control Crews are an essential part of Neighborhood Services’s efforts to help citizens maintain safe and clean communities.
The Litter Crew works along roadways and at illegal dump sites to properly dispose of litter, trash and debris. Due to the size and the number of roads within Prince William, 15 major and 52 secondary roads are identified and scheduled for monthly maintenance.
Route 234 and the Prince William Parkway are two of the major roads the Litter Crew maintains each month. Nearly 50 percent of the Litter Crew’s time is invested into cleaning and maintaining these two roads due to the overwhelming amount of litter ever-present on them.
Neighborhood Services relies on neighborhoods and community partners, such as Keep Prince William Beautiful, to help keep residential side streets and subdivisions free of litter. Neighborhoods can organize weekend clean-ups to help keep their communities clean and litter free. As scheduling allows, the Litter Crew may assist the clean-ups by removing the bags of collected trash and litter, typically the Monday following the event.
It is through the support of the community’s efforts to maintain their neighborhoods that the Litter Crew can focus on their assigned road schedule. Thank you for doing your part to help keep Prince William clean.
