ODOT Asking the Public to Help with Litter Problem


The Ohio Department of Transportation is asking the public to help out with the problem of litter.

On average, Ohio Department of Transportation crews collect more than 400,000 bags of other people's trash from along the state’s roadsides annually. This effort costs all of us around $4 million each year. Sadly, that time and money goes to address an issue that's 100 percent preventable.

The same men and women who pick up trash along our roadways also perform other vital work like plowing snow, patching potholes, repairing guardrail, mowing grass, and replacing culverts. Picking up other people's trash takes them away from those important jobs. That's why they're asking for Ohioans to help by doing something most of us learned in elementary school: Use a trash can.
