Roadside Litter Program

Litter Crew sign

Environmental Management staff removes an average of 1,200 tons litter and items illegally dumped on County roads, covering over 2,000 miles of road side each year. The Litter Abatement Program keeps County maintained roadways clean and minimizes contamination of stormwater runoff. Litter and illegally dumped items are collected by staff and low-risk inmates from the County Jail. Due to the volume of roadside miles, priority is given to the more heavily used roadways and those where significant accumulations of litter exist.

We encourage the community to help keep El Dorado County clean. If you see a trash or litter problem, click on the link below to report it.
