Caltrans to target trash on Thursday

Tuesday, April 22, 2014 - 4:30 p.m. - California Department of Transportation workers wearing high-visibility orange vests will pick up trash along county highways on Thursday, April 24.

The effort is part of Caltrans' annual Litter Removal and Enforcement Day.

Removing plastic and other trash protects wildlife, ensures the effective operation of drainage systems and prevents the spread of disease, a Caltrans press release said.

Area motorists are asked to slow down for safety when they pass the crews.

Thursday's cleanup day will take place across California. Caltrans' District 10, which made the local announcement, covers Alpine, Amador, Calaveras, Mariposa, Merced, San Joaquin, Stanislaus and Tuolumne counties.
