Democratic Candidate Gary Wegman is running for Pennsylvania’s 9th Congressional district.

Litter along Pennsylvania highways and in rural communities is a persistent problem that mars the state’s natural beauty and costs taxpayers millions of dollars.

A Pennsylvania Litter Research Study published in February by the Department of Environmental Protection and the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation estimated there were 502 million pieces of litter on Pennsylvania’s roads.

During the Pandemic, illegal dumping in rural areas has become increasingly problematic, too.

Appearing on Smart Talk Monday to highlight the problem are Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection Secretary Patrick McDonnellNatasha Fackler, PennDOT Policy Director and Shannon Reiter, Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful President.
