MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - West Virginia officials Tuesday unveiled a new get-tough campaign to fight mountains of litter in the Mountain State.
Coordinators for Adopt-A-Highway, the volunteer trash pickup program in the state, offered volunteers a toll-free number they can call to report people who litter. They also discussed other new littler control efforts during a meeting at the Berkeley County Courthouse in Martinsburg.
The toll-free number to reporter littering is 1-800-322-5530.
People who litter in the state face a fine of between $50 and $2,000.
In addition to the toll-free number, Adopt-A-Highway officials unveiled a new campaign slogan, "Please make sure no one trashes West Virginia." The slogan will appear in radio and television spots, as well as on 72 anti-littering billboards across the state, officials said.
