NYSDOT CONDUCTS TRASH BLITZ AT STARLIGHT PARK
In recognition of Earth Day, the NYS Department of Transportation participated in a statewide ‘Trash Blitz’ on Monday, April 22. Many NYSDOT workers volunteered their time collecting
and disposing of litter found throughout Starlight Park. Trash Blitz is intended to bring awareness to motorists that littering tarnishes the landscape of the state and threatens both the
safety of the roadway and the natural habitat surrounding it.
