You may have noticed a lot of Caltrans crews out along local highways on Thursday. It was part of a statewide effort to clean up California's highways.
Caltrans expected to haul away more than 2,500 cubic yards of trash and remove more than 16,000 square feet of graffiti on Thursday.
Caltrans says cigarette butts are the most littered item in the state, but workers find all kinds of things, such as iPods, kitchen pots and pans, bottles, and even old sofas.
Last year, Caltrans says it spent $52 million on litter removal.
