New Litter Cans Placed on Georgia Avenue

July 26, 2016

A little over a week ago I posted that the Metro ventilation shafts on the east side of Georgia Avenue between Quebec Place and Rock Creek Church Road had become defacto litter cans after litter cans were removed in the winter of 2011/2012. I know that several people reached out to the Department of Public Works (DPW) in addition to myself, and it looks like that activism has done its job.

In walking down the 3660 block of Georgia Avenue yesterday I noticed that DPW has installed not one, not two, but three new litter cans on the block. There is one in the center of the block, one outside of King’s Deli, and one outside of Georgia Beauty Supply.

Adopt-A-Block Program — Helps Keep Communities Clean

February 23, 2011

Per signage around the block, the Park View Condominiums at 610 Irving Street, NW, are part of DC’s Clean City Initiative. Adopt-A-Block offers a hands-on project for people and organizations. The program allows participants to make a noticeable contribution to their communities.

To be a part of the clean&greenDC: Adopt-A-Block Program, a group:

  • Adopts a minimum of 2 square blocks of a residential or commercial area;
  • Agrees to conduct a quarterly clean-up day and weekly litter pickup in the adopted area; and,
  • Maintains this agreement for 2 years.
