The Clean California program is a major Caltrans initiative that has removed 96,293 cubic yards of litter throughout the state during the 2022-23 fiscal year. District 7 accounted for 42,239 cubic yards of litter has been removed as a result of offering Dump Day events during this time. And in the 2020–21 fiscal year (FY), District 7 removed 75,000 cubic yards of trash from the state highway system. Through funding from Clean California, District 7 has hosted over twenty-five (25) highly successful Clean California Dump Days and collected over 11,000 cubic yards of debris to date.

Litter increases the risk of fire, pollutes our waterways, threatens wildlife and costs taxpayers millions of dollars to remove. Caltrans asks all Californians to be part of the solution, dispose of trash responsibly, and secure cargo loads before getting on the road.

The California Highway Patrol enforces litter laws and reminds drivers to properly dispose of trash and properly secure cargo loads. Officers issued more than 3,100 tickets last year alone — lit cigarettes accounting for one third of the total. Unsecured cargo loads pose safety concerns for the traveling public.
