RANDALLSTWON,Md — Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski announced a new anti-littering campaign on Monday

Litter Blitz encourages residents to pick up litter in April and May. They can share their good deeds online by using the hashtags #baltcolitterblitz and #trashtag.

"We're asking everyone to lend a hand," said Olszewski. "Grab a bag and pick up some litter when you're out on a walk, or watching your kids soccer game. It's that simple. If we all just take a few minutes to do our part together we can make a huge difference in our neighborhood and in our bay."

Olszewski also announced an ad campaign with the slogan "Litter Doesn't Stop Where It Drops." The ad images show just how much trash contaminates food that is consumed.

The ads will be posted on MTA buses, the Light RailLink and outdoor trash cans.
