That mileage again was 0.6, not 6.0 or 60.0. We concentrated on the litter at the base of the highway embankment as that is the trash most likely to be picked up by high water and delivered downstream to the Edisto River. Therefore, the 122 bags of collected trash shown in the image below does not account for all of the trash along the 0.6 miles of highway. Additionally, there were items too bulky to handle (a log from a passing truck complete with red flag and reflector) or not permissible for disposal at the landfill (multiple tires).
