The Ugly Truth About Litter

It costs an estimated 11.5 billion dollars to clean up litter in the United States each year. Not only is litter  costly to clean up, it is harmful to wildlife, it impacts local communities and economic development, and eventually ends up in our streams, tributaries, rivers, and the Chesapeake Bay.  Be part of the solution by disposing of trash properly. Contact your local litter program manager or Keep Virginia Beautiful for more ways to  help keep roads, parks, schools, and waterways clean and litter free. Make a "No Love for Litter" Pledge with Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT).  #donttrashcentralvirginia
