MDC and MoDOT Trash Bash Campaign Underway

The Missouri Department of Conservation and the Missouri Department of Transportation are sponsoring an anti-littering “No More Trash Bash” campaign. Activities aimed at helping to reduce litter and improve the environment, include education efforts in school, community events and Earth Day celebrations. In 2018, volunteers who participated in litter pickup events removed 65,185 bags of trash and several truckloads of debris. Last year, MoDOT spent $6.4 million to remove litter from more than 385,000 acres of roadsides along 34,000 state highway miles.
