4B Entertainment May 6, 2004 The Cuba Free Press May 3-9 is No MOre T :ash! week in Missouri Missouri spends millions of dollars cleaning up trash every year. To increase public awareness of the littering problem in Missouri, the Missouri Department of Transportation is celebrating May 3-9 as No MOre Trash! Week in Missouri. A TV public service announcement, litter road signs and kickoff events are planned statewide. The Missouri departments of Conservation and Transportation launched the first No MOre Trash! Campaign in April 2002 with the ultimate goal of mak- ing Missouri a litter-free state. "No MOre Trash! Week is a wake-up call for Missourians," said MoDOT District Engineer Tom Stehn. "Trash is a problem in Missouri, but it's one prob- lem we can solve together. We want people to understand what they can do to help; we want them to be part of the solution. After all, every Missourian benefits from a lit- ter-free environment." MoDOT has road signs to remind motorists of the penal- ties for littering. The green, lic may call MoDOT toll-free at 1-888- ASK-MODOT to request additional signs where littering is a problem. Each year, MoDOT spends about $4.2 million statewide to clear litter along Missouri highways. The department's 3,500 Adopt-A-Highway groups provide another $1.5 million worth of litter cleanup. "To put that into perspective, MoDOT How can you help? During No MOre Trashl Week practice litter prevention in your home, your school, your workplace, and your neighborhood. Here are a few ideas: • reduce the amount of trash you create • reuse and recycle what you can • properly dispose of trash this week and every week (cigarette butts count as trash) • pick up any trash you find • get involved in Adopt-A-Highway or another similar organizations • participate in a trash pick-up or similar event • make every week No MOre Trashl Week black and white sign includes information could use that money to resurface more about the $1,000 maximum fine and/or a than 200 miles of roads, we could replace year in jail penalty for the crime of litter- as many as eight bridges or make many ing, as well as the No MOre Trash! logo bridge repairs around the state," Stehn and web site address -- www.nomore- said. trash.org. Signs are usually placed at rest The department's offender work crews areas and at high-litter locations• The pub- have already picked up over 15,000 bags of litter this year in the 13 counties that make up the south central district alone. Recentry-cre,s*picking up li-r in 3 coun- ties on 1-44 were averaging around 600 bags a day. Crews picking up litter on Routes 21 and 8 in 4 counties were aver- aging over 200 bags of litter per day. And that doesn't include what other agencies do. Missouri Stream Team volun- teers picked up 420 tons of trash in 2001. Conservation agents handed out hundreds of tickets for lit- tering. '%Ve have to do more than just pick up trash," Stehn said. "We need to change the way people think. We want Missourians to understand that litter is a prob- lem we can solve by making conscious decisions to properly dispose of the trash we gener- ate."
