The smell of spring is in the air – and for many that means it’s time to start spring cleaning. The Indiana Department of Transportation gets in on the spring cleaning action with its annual Trash Bash! along Hoosier roadways.
Trash Bash! will begin on Friday, April 13, with INDOT maintenance forces dedicating the day to litter clean-up. Throughout the weekend, April 14-15.
As you travel along Indiana’s roadways this weekend, watch for crews and volunteers as they are cleaning the roadside. Reduce your speed, use caution and consider worker safety when driving through the area.
More than 22,123 bags of trash in the past five years, with 7,346 being picked up in 2017 alone. INDOT spends an average of $5.8 million to accomplish litter pick-up every year on the state’s 11,000 center lane miles of roadway.
