ANCHORAGE, Alaska — A lot of Anchorage roads are in need of some major spring cleaning.
The retreating snow has revealed all kinds of garbage and for the most part groups of volunteers are responsible for picking it all up.
According to the Alaska Department of Transportation, nearly all major roadsides in Anchorage are covered by the “Adopt a Highway” program.
Boy Scout troops, local companies, sports teams -- all kinds of groups are about to fan out across town picking up the tons of trash that litter roads like the Seward Highway.
It may not happen as soon as in past years because of all the snow, but DOT says cleanup activity usually gathers momentum during the citywide cleanup week, which is scheduled to start May 12th.
