litter has million dollar price tag DEPARTMENT of Highways crews are shown collec- Interstate 77 near Charleston. Litter collection taxpayers more than $1 million during fiscal The Glenville 13 Litter clean-up on West Virginia highways cost tax payers a hefty $1,096,166 during fiscal year 1978. Money for litter collection comes out of the general Highway budget. Statistics gathered by the West Virginia Department of Highways show that some counties in the state spend up to $500 each week to collect litter from streets, parks and roadside litter barrtes. According to Charles L. Miller, DOH commissioner, "This money is vitally needed in other areas--for work such as pothole patching, drainage repairs and roadway stabilization. As long as motorists wont pick up their own trash, taxpayers will continue to foot this uncessary and expensive bill." In addition to the high dollar cost of litter collection, there is also a high cost in the amount of worktime spent on clean-up opera- tions. As Miller says, "Any time Trash on the road can be dangerous, too. Spills can cause personal injury and broken bottles can damage equipment and pro- perty. "The best way to reduce litter pickup costs," Miller states, "is simply to reduce littering. That can only be done with the care and cooperation of the public. With the start of the summer vacation and travel season just around the cor- ner, it's especially vital for drivers, picnickers and tourists to remember to put their litter in its proper place. We can all do our part on a small scale to help solve the larger problem." And, as a reminder, anyone caught littering in West Virginia faces a possible $500 fine.
