When this snow melts, it will likely reveal lots of trash along the roads.
Plastic shopping bags, soda bottles and car parts are just some of the items that litter the highway.
It takes volunteers to help spruce up the roadsides and keep their communities looking beautiful.
Volunteers receive gloves, trash bags and safety vests from PennDOT to participate in the cleanup.
How much does participating make a difference?
Consider this: Last year’s effort resulted in 6.1 million pounds of litter being picked up statewide along roads, trails and shorelines, a news release states.
