Caltrans resumes litter cleanup on California highways, partners with CHP to enforce litter laws




In this News Flash, learn how new safety protocols have allowed Caltrans to resume its litter abatement efforts along the State Highway System during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Litter removal was limited to protect the health and safety of Caltrans crews during the health crisis.

Due to the accumulation of trash on the highways as traffic begins to increase, Caltrans and its partner organizations like Adopt-A-Highway began collecting garbage statewide in June.

The department is also partnering with the California Highway Patrol (CHP) to enforce the state’s anti-littering laws.
