Caltrans annual litter day is tomorrow
Wednesday, April 22, 2015 — The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) District 2 will join 11 other Caltrans districts as they take part in the nationwide Litter Clean-Up Day on Thursday, April 23.
District 2 spent more than $750,000 on cleanup and trash removal along our highways last year. Statewide, Caltrans workers collected about 3,000 cubic yards of trash throughout the state, enough to fill nearly 21,000 large garbage bags.
