Volunteers and highway workers were out Friday along a busy highway in Pulaski County.
The work was called the "U.S. 27 Clean Sweep."
Workers at the Center for Rural Development took part, picking up even the smallest amounts of debris.
"Not a lot of massive amounts of trash, but we are finding a lot of cigarette butts, so that is disturbing. But it's a fact of life that people find it too easy to flick those out and not think about them," Said Michael Cornett, who was helping with the cleanup.
Volunteers say the message is for drivers to think twice about tossing out garbage, even if it's as small as a cigarette butt.
