The Indiana Department of Transportation today announced that the agency’s annual Trash Bash! will take place Friday, April 13 through Sunday, April 15. Trash Bash! brings INDOT crews together with volunteers to beautify the state’s roadside areas by cleaning trash and debris. On average, INDOT invests about $4.3 million and more than 60,000 labor hours to pick up litter on state highways each year. On Friday, April 13, INDOT maintenance staff across the state will direct their focus toward litter collection on roads with high-traffic volume, such as interstates and divided highways. INDOT urges individuals, organizations, businesses and active Adopt-a-Highway groups to join maintenance staff on two-lane roads with lower traffic volume anytime between Friday, April 13, and Sunday, April 15, in our monumental effort to beautify our roadside areas.
