MassHighway today launched its annual roadway trash removal program. MassHighway workers, local business groups, volunteers and crews of prisoners have begun collecting trash that has accumulated along major highways.
MassHighway Commissioner Luisa Paiewonsky joined clean up crews in Chicopee at the Route 33 rotaries.
Last year crews picked up 145,700 bags or 582.8 tons of trash from Massachusetts roadways. The volunteer litter cleanup campaign saves taxpayers a portion of the trash removal expense.
MassHighway’s Adopt-A-Highway public service program focuses on major routes such as interstate roadways, with volunteer cleanups along individually-sponsored two-mile stretches of highway. Learn more about the program.
