"Trash Bash" Cleans Up Hoosier Highways

Last updated on Sunday, April 6, 2008

(UNDATED) - Warmer weather means it is time for spring cleaning in the Hoosier state — and Indiana’s highways are no exception.

This weekend, the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT), the Indiana Department of Correction (DOC) and Adopt-A-Highway groups will kick off a major statewide effort to clean up Indiana's highways during Trash Bash.

Each year, hundreds of tons of trash are collected, sprucing up highways in time for nice weather. Last year more than 34,500 bags of trash were collected from 3,000 miles of state highways.
