People have been busy cleaning the highways in Beaufort, South Carolina. More than 700 Adopt-a-Highway volunteers have been out picking up trash along local highways each month.
Last year alone, they collected more than 78,000 pounds of litter. Amazingly that's more than 100,000 pounds less than last year.
"If it were not for the volunteers, the litter would be up around our knees," said Veronica Miller of Keep Beaufort County Beautiful.
Beaufort County began its Adopt-a-Highway program eight years ago. South Carolina's statewide program started in 1988.
If you'd like to volunteer, contact Veronica Miller at 843.470.6416. Jasper County volunteers can call Delia Caskey at 843.726.7611.
