Hunter councils have received an $80,000 state government grant for a litter reduction program that will feature an awareness campaign for arterial roads, targeting roadside litter thrown from vehicles. Roadside litter clean-ups will be undertaken and litter counts undertaken at selected monitoring sites. Signage will be installed on the arterial roads, and a range of educational litter prevention activities will be undertaken at highway service centres.
