Through Clean California, Caltrans is making a serious investment in litter collection, community engagement and education to ultimately transform unsightly roadsides into spaces of pride for all Californians. It takes direct aim at the continuous trash generation that has overwhelmed the significant investment of time and resources by Caltrans and its partners collecting, recycling, and disposing of litter and hazardous waste.
Local Grant Program
As part of Clean California, Caltrans is developing the Clean California Local Grant Program. The two-year local grant program includes approximately $296 million for local communities to beautify and improve local streets and roads, tribal lands, parks, pathways, and transit centers to clean and enhance public spaces..
