District 4 ‘Pick It UP!’ Anti-Litter and Beautification Initiative Kick-Off Event – Community Clean Up Day Saturday, September 30th
Bowie, Glenn Dale, and Lanham Residents ‘Pick It UP!’ – Residents Encouraged to Volunteer
Prince George’s County Council Member Ingrid Watson (District 4) will launch the inaugural District 4 “Pick It UP!” Anti-Litter and Beautification Initiative on Saturday, September 30th with a simultaneous Community Clean-Up Day in the Bowie, Glenn Dale, and Lanham communities from 9:00 a.m. – 12 noon.
The Pick It UP! Initiative and accompanying anti-litter campaign encourages clean, litter-free District 4 communities; raises awareness around the harmful impacts of litter and illegal dumping; promote community involvement; and encourages civic pride through ongoing clean-up drives and prevention education efforts.
Council Member Watson invites every District 4 resident to join in and ‘Pick It UP!”
“Volunteers of all ages and in every District 4 community can share in the excitement and benefit of the Pick It UP! Initiative. Each small effort will have a huge impact on our local environment -something our residents agree is paramount – maintaining property values, protecting wildlife and natural spaces, beautifying our neighborhoods, raising awareness around plastic pollution, and promoting our community bonds. We want to keep our communities clean. I am proud to say that this effort kicks off with a clean-up but Pick It UP! will be an ongoing effort that will continue to bring awareness to our litter problem.”
Residents may volunteer during the kick-off event at one of three Pick It UP! Locations:
*Bowie - Mitchellville Road (Fred Robinson Way to Mount Oak Road)
– Meet at 9:00 am at Bowie Town Center in the former Sears building parking lot (across from Best Buy)
Lanham – Presley Manor Park, 7171 Presley Road, Lanham, MD 20706
Glenn Dale - Glenn Dale Commons, 7626 Buzz Aldrin Lane, Glenn Dale, MD 20706
