Keep America Beautiful 2020 National Litter Study
The results are in on litter in America. Keep America Beautiful has released data from their 2020 national litter study providing a valid, national estimate of litter along waterways and roadways in the U.S. The study shows that there has been a 54% reduction in roadside litter. While this is promising, there is still work to be done. Help keep our roads litter-free by participating in FDOT’s Adopt-A-Highway program. If you or your organization would like to become involved in Florida’s Adopt-A-Highway program, please call 1-800-BAN-LITT(er) / 1-800-226-5488 or visit www.myflorida.com.
