[ARCHIVED] Join QAC in celebrating Earth Day April 27-29

Gregg and Jim Earth Day SMS 2015

One day isn’t enough to clean up the Earth and Queen Anne’s County residents are challenged to join us April 27-29 to surpass previous years’ roadside clean-up figures. Free gloves, reflective vests, recycling and trash bags are provided at sign up locations beginning April 7th.

It’s been a long, messy winter and Queen Anne’s County Commissioners invite all citizens to adopt a road and join in the effort of returning our scenic roadways to their former beauty.

 “I have participated in a couple of these Earth Day clean ups in the past with the Kent Island High School student athletes, it’s a great event, and it is always great to see our county’s youth getting involved,” said Commissioner Philip L. Dumenil.

 Public Works Director Todd Mohn said, “We want to get everybody out there. Our motto is ‘Join the Fight, Do what’s Right.”

 Connie Toulson, who leads the county’s recycling efforts and Earth Day, said, “Improve our Earth and Queen Anne’s County by selecting a road, school, park or community area. Individual, group and business participation is welcome.”

 Volunteers can select a road online or at the public works office. There is a tutorial video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=htxFoRtOw10&feature=youtu.be

and the interactive map to select a road to “adopt” and clean at  gis.qac.org/adopt.

 The county urges participants to mark which roads they are working on so the public works’ crews know where to collect the bags on Monday afternoon.

 The free gloves, trash bags and reflective vests can be picked up at Queen Anne’s County Public Works, Finance Office, Planning and Zoning Office, Kent Island and Centreville libraries and the Chesapeake Heritage and Visitor Center.

  For more information call the county’s Public Works Department at 410-758-0920 or check out www.QAC.org or email CLEANUP@QAC.ORG.
