Efforts Underway to Clean Up 3660 Block of Georgia Avenue

Lately, the east side of Georgia Avenue between Rock Creek Church Road and Quebec Place has been particularly bad with discarded trash. In particular, the two ventilation grates for the nearby Georgia Avenue metro station have been used as de facto trash collection bins as shown in the photo taken on July 11th and shared by a reader.

Several neighbors have reached out to me, DPW, and Councilmember Nadeau seeking a solution to this problem. In addition to a Green Team which would come later in the year, one suggestion has been to have a new litter can added to the block so that people have some place to put their cups, bags, and other debris. There used to be a litter can on this block which was removed sometime between October 2011 and May 2012. As the ventilation grates are being used as litter cans, and as Georgia Avenue is a heavily used commercial corridor, it makes sense that the litter can should be returned.

Requests have already been made to the Department of Public Works for a new can and we hope to see it installed soon.

    I understood the clean team to be in effect in FY2017? Either way it is a ridiculous amount of trash that is discarded daily up and down GA, glad this intersection is hopefully being addressed.

    I hope Brandon Todd gets involved too because it’s not better farther up Georgia Ave. There needs to be a comprehensive strategy to revitalize Georgia Ave. Too much economic development funds and policy is being directed to other parts of the city.
