County Councilwoman Deni Taveras announced there would be a massive “Litter Blitz” happening on two particular days in April in which PG County will be coming through to do a one-time litter clean-up along the “arterial roads”…or as she re-phrased “any road with a number” – so in Mount Rainier, that would be Rte 1 (Rhode Island Ave) and Rte 500 (Queens Chapel Road).
