Road Litter Control

This program is in place to remove and dispose of waste products that are left in the county’s right-of-way.

Road litter removal and disposal includes trash that can enter the county’s Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Systems (MS4) facilities. Large dead animal removal and other road trash such as tree limbs pose safety hazards, and are removed by the Operations Division staff. The county’s Road Litter Control Program also includes the sweeping of specific county roads and roadway intersections. The litter control data is reflected in the county’s annual National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System Permit annual report.
