This April folks all around the state joined together to clean up Missouri's roadsides and streams. More than 129,000 bags of litter were cleaned up during April 2013. Thousands pitched in and were recognized for their efforts. The participants included Adopt-A-Highway, Sponsor-A-Highway, Stream Teams, city-wide cleanups, families and many others.
Education is key! Several educational events were held emphasizing the importance of not littering. Changing habits sure isn't easy but we're working on it. It's not only important to pick up litter but to stop throwing it out in the first place.
It's amazing the difference we make working together to keep our state clean and beautiful. Thank you!
