Happy Earth Day from your
Department of the Environment!

Earth Day is today, April 22, 2022! We hope you've joined us while we celebrate "Earth Day Every Day" throughout the month!

The Office of the County Executive issued a proclamation recognizing Earth Day, as well as April as Earth Month and this week as "Preserve and Beautify our Environment Week"! There are bountiful of opportunities for Prince Georgians to get involved and “Invest In Our Planet. What Will You Do?” 

Read the full proclamation by clicking here or the image below. 

If you’re planning to visit the Brown Station Road Sanitary Landfill (BSRSL) today to properly recycle uncommon items such as white goods/appliances, household hazardous waste (HHW), or electronics, staff will be handing out small goodies, to say thank you for being Part of it and Proud of it! Items will be distributed while supplies last.

Let’s all do our part to protect Mother Earth and keep our County clean and beautiful!

April isn't over yet! Get social with us by using #PGCEarthDayEveryDay and visit our website for ongoing updates at

County Residents Can Pick Up FREE Mulch on April 23

Prince George’s County residents can pick up FREE mulch from the County Organics Composting Facility on Saturday, April 23, from 8 am to 1 pm or while supplies last.

Mulch for this source reduction event is derived from live holiday trees collected curbside and dropped off throughout January.
