The litter challenge resulted in more than 4,900 volunteers participating in 359 clean-ups throughout Baltimore County, removing tons of trash from communities, before it could wash into waterways and the Chesapeake Bay. The anti-litter initiative encouraged BCPS schools and community organizations to conduct litter clean-ups and anti-littering outreach this past year.

Co-hosts of the challenge include Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz, Baltimore County Public Schools and the Education Foundation of Baltimore County. This year’s challenge is sponsored by Wheelabrator Technologies, Tradepoint Atlantic and the Baltimore County Department of Environmental Protection and Sustainability.
