Since the initiative launched last month, more than 330 bags of roadside litter have been collected.

Last month, a new roadside litter initiative was launched in Berkeley County, W.Va. The program is an expansion of the county’s community service program, which coordinates individuals’ completion of court-imposed community service hours.

Since the launch, more than 330 bags of roadside litter have been collected. This week, the initiative is expanding to clean up the roads in Butts Mill, Delmar Orchard and Harlan Springs.
