An apology from the GSSD

In the past week and a half there has been a significant accumulation of trash across the special services district in Germantown. The GSSD dropped the ball with communicating with our vendor, Ready, Willing & Able (RWA) to ensure they were paid in a timely manner.

As of this morning (August 1,2018), we can share that RWA has returned to clean the special services district and to remedy the overflowing trash situation.

At our Clean, Safe and Beautification meeting this morning we spoke about the continued engagement of merchants, property owners, city agencies and residents in the process of building a sustainable trash mitigation strategy by our organization. There is a lot of work to be done and it requires resident and merchant community support. In the future, please email our executive director, David Rose, at with your concerns about issues of litter in the commercial corridors. Together we can work to maintain a culture of cleanliness and accountability. It is important to note that this process is an ongoing continuous effort and priority with our organization and working with the community to make Germantown litter free for everyone. Thank you!

Yours in partnership,

David Rose, Executive Director

The Germantown Special Services District
