W.V. Cleanups Remove More Than 200 Tons of Litter

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - West Virginia's landscape is cleaner following two spring cleanups that removed more than 200 tons of litter and debris.

The Department of Environmental Protection said Friday that more than 11,000 volunteers participated in the Make It Shine and Adopt-A-Highway cleanup programs in April.

Make It Shine volunteers removed more than 130 tons of trash from public lands and streams across the state. They also collected 3,376 discarded tires.

Adopt-A-Highway volunteers collected 7,225 bags of litter from roadways.

Another Adopt-A-Highway cleanup is scheduled Sept. 30 through Oct. 2.
