Weekend Service Crew makes a big difference in White Flint

The White Flint weekend service crew continues to have a positive impact on the apprearance of downtown White Flint. Below are before and after pictures of Rockville Pike, near Tuckerman Lane. Last Saturday, the crew collected 175 bags of trash and leaves from the sidewalk along Rockville Pike between Tuckerman to Hillery Lane.

The weekend service crew is a collaboration between the Bethesda-Chevy Chase Regional Services Center and the County Department of Corrections. Crew members are individuals serving Court-ordered community service. The crew began operating in May 2012 and is modeled after a successful program in Silver Spring.
