Annual Statewide Effort to Clean Up Indiana Roadways is Underway

FORT WAYNE, Ind (WOWO): In an annual statewide effort to clean up Indiana roads, INDOT crews are already focusing their attention on patching potholes and removing litter along Hoosier highways.

The Annual Trash Bash is underway and lasts until April 28th. It also coincides with National Earth Day to help raise awareness of littering.  

INDOT encourages all Hoosiers to keep Indiana’s highways clean by following these simple tips:

  • Don’t litter: Set a good example for everyone, especially children.
  • Be responsible: Carry a litter bag in your car instead of tossing trash out the window.
  • Report it: Report areas where people have illegally dumped garbage to your local transportation, public works or conservation office.
  • Adopt it: To find out how your group can become involved in helping beautify an area near you by participating in Adopt-A-Highway, Sponsor-A-Highway or other highway beautification efforts please contact our Customer Service Department at (260) 484-9541 or 1-866-227-3555.
