Frederick County Clean Sweep partners with the Community Inmate Workforce and the Virginia Department of Transportation, Stephens City Office, to perform litter cleanup efforts along county roads. During the past year, the CIWF contributed services valued at $37,237, collecting just over 23 tons of unsightly litter. This does not include the removal of nearly 500 illegally dumped tires. The crew's effort are in addition to pickup programs by VDOT and Adopt-a-Highway volunteers.
Keep A Lid On It! Prevent Litter.
Prevention is the very best way to keep our community clean and green:
Set an example. Keep your property litter-free.
Secure all trash can lids and loads before heading to the landfill or convenience site.
Carry a litter bag in your car.
Never toss debris or food out of the car window.
Businesses -- provide ash and trash receptacles and all entrances and exits. Secure dumpsters.
Organize a community cleanup.
Plant Pride, Not Litter
Community volunteers are encouraged to join the hundreds of Adopt-A-Highway volunteers already cleaning up roadways and waterways across the Commonwealth. For those coordinating a one-time effort, supplies (bags, litter grabbers, vests) are available on a loan basis by contacting the Clean Sweep office.
