Free gloves, trash bags and re­flec­tive vests will be avail­able through­out the county be­gin­ning April 11 at des­ig­nated col­lec­tion sites. Par­tic­i­pants can sign up for an area and pick up sup­plies at Queen Anne’s County Pub­lic Works, Fi­nance Of­fice and Plan­ning and Zon­ing, Kent Is­land Li­brary, Cen­tre­ville Li­brary and Ch­e­sa­peake Heritage and Vis­i­tor Cen­ter.

Like the clean up last year, 2015, Queen Anne’s County Pub­lic Works crews will place col­lected trash and re­cy­clables into their re­spec­tive dump­sters to vi­su­al­ize how much de­bris has been col­lected from road­sides.
