Clean Green 15: Team BCPS Litter Challenge
Litter is not just unsightly, its costs really add up. It detracts from our neighborhoods, creates problems in our waterways and harms wildlife. Plus, cleaning it from storm drains, streets and parks is a waste of tax dollars that could go toward schools, parks and other priorities. We’ll continue to do our part, but you can pitch in for a simple, powerful solution. Thanks for making a difference.
Help Your Local School Earn an Environmental Grant
You and your group can make tons of difference for the environment – and help a Baltimore County public school get credit toward an environmental project grant!
It’s easy and quick. Just grab some bags and take 15 minutes for your group to pick up litter in a messy area near you – a park, a schoolyard, a vacant lot, a stream, anywhere that needs it. No complicated program, no cost to taxpayers, no special coordination or supplies – you decide when, where, who and how. The challenge runs from April 1 to May 31.
Share Your Results with Us
After your cleanup, come back to this page and let us know how much you picked up. We’ll track the amount of trash collected as part of the Department of Environmental Protection and Sustainability’s Chesapeake Bay restoration goals. Help us help the bay!
