Litter Pickup Day A Success

Sponsored by:

Sonora, CA– A few Mother Lode highways are a little cleaner today thanks to a Caltrans statewide Litter Pickup Day event.

In honor of Earth Day, Caltrans crews in Calaveras County picked up 32 bags of litter on Highways 12, 26, and 49.

In Tuolumne County, crews picked up 86 bags of litter and debris for the entire day along Highway 120 and Highway 108.  Friends of Mike Pate, a Tuolumne County Adopt-A-Highway group, also participated with Caltrans and picked up 14 bags.
