A state-wide campaign to clean up roadways and enforce litter laws on North Carolina's highways began this past Saturday.

The North Carolina Department of Transportation and the North Carolina Highway Patrol have teamed up for the Spring Litter Sweep.

The two-week campaign, which ends April 28, places on emphasis on keeping the state's roadways free of litter. During the operation, troopers will patrol litter-prone roadways across the state, increasing their efforts to enforce litter laws. At the same time, NCDOT maintenance crews, Adopt-A-Highway Groups, N.C. Department of Correction inmate crews, community service workers and volunteers will be working to remove litter from highways. State fines for littering are over  300-dollars in some cases. For more information about the state's litter sweeps, call 1-800-331-5864 or go online to
