CHARLESTON, W.Va.


West Virginia officials are planning to recognize thousands of volunteers who pick up litter along the state's roadways.

The West Virginia departments of Environmental Protection and Transportation say they'll host the 18th annual Adopt-A-Highway Volunteer Appreciation Day Picnic on Aug. 2 at Snowshoe Resort in Pocahontas County.

More than 40,000 volunteers representing in excess of 1,400 organizations keep more than 3,300 miles of West Virginia roads litter free.

Officials say volunteers remove more than 4 million pounds of trash from state highways each year. They also recycle about 10,000 pounds of glass, 5,000 pounds of plastic and 8,000 pounds of aluminum annually.
