For some drivers, the roadside is a quick-fix to rid trash
Pam Carswell- "Litter is unwanted trash that is thrown out on highways, roadways, that is not put in the proper place which would be in a trash can."
Of the litter found on roadways...cigarette butts make up 40-percent.
"They're not biodegradable so they are going to be there for many many years."
It's followed by paper and plastic. That's according to a survey conducted by Keep America Beautiful
"It's our litter bugs that's the problem. It's the people that are putting the trash on the ground. That is our problem."

"When people drive through any time of the year, we want them to have a good impression on our city, that it's clean and that it's a great place to come and visit."
Carswell says instead of dumping litter on the side of the road...carry a trash bag inside your car to dispose later
