Caltrans Annual Litter Cleanup Day
Caltrans, The California Highway Patrol, and I Love A Clean San Diego.
Caltrans will host an event to spotlight its annual statewide Litter Cleanup Day. Speakers will discuss the dangers of large litter items found on our highways, such as ladders, mattresses and appliances, and the importance of properly securing heavy loads with cargo netting.
Thursday, April 25 at 1:30 p.m.
Richmond Street Overcrossing
Northbound State Route 163, Richmond Street exit

The event will feature large litter items found on area freeways, as well as a truck with a properly-secured load. Taxpayers spend more than $3.5 million last year on litter removal – that is money better spent on freeway maintenance.
