Taxpayers paying $3.2 million to keep highways clean

PINE BELT (WDAM) - Littering has been an ongoing issue here in the Magnolia State, costing taxpayers $3.2 million annually to keep the state clean.

“If people wouldn’t litter and throw trash on the side of the highway, then this money could be used to improve our roads,” MDOT’s public information officer Jason Scott said.

Scott said for them to work on the roads, they must first be clean, and that means implementing a few programs such as the Inmate Litter Removal program.
