The Caltrans “Drive-in Trash-Out” campaign will be coming to California State University, Fresno on Wednesday, April 5. The event is designed for college students and highlights proper ways to discard litter that accumulates in their cars.

It will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the parking lot in front of the Student Recreational Center, Shaw and Woodrow avenues. It is sponsored by the Fresno State Recyling Club and the state Department of Transportation (Caltrans).

The event will feature a carnival-style game, Trashball, which allows participants to vie for prizes while learning ways to reduce litter. There will be information booths, music and free giveaways. Staffers will help students clean out their cars while providing tips on litter and water pollution prevention.

The event is part of the Caltrans “Don’t Trash California” Storm Water Public Education Campaign, a statewide effort to reduce the amount of litter that enters the highway storm drains.
