SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Caltrans crews will be cleaning up trash and debris throughout the state to decrease litter on Thursday.

The operation will happen along I-5 and state roads throughout local counties.

The operation is an annual event. Since July 2021, they have collected more than 470,000 cubic yards of litter.

Caltrans asks that drivers pay extra attention on the road as their workers continue to clean.
