The Department of Environmental Protection is accepting registrations through Saturday for a statewide clean-up day.

Cleanup day is April 28.

Co-sponsored by the Division of Highways, the event is aimed at improving the quality of the environment and encouraging public involvement in keeping West Virginia roadsides clean.

Individuals, families, churches, businesses, school and groups can sign up to collect trash on almost any state-maintained road, back road or main route.

Anyone 12 or older can take part.

Private roads and Interstates cannot be adopted.

Bags, gloves and safety vests are provided, and the state disposes of the trash.

More than 5,000 volunteers cleaned up more than 800 miles of road last year.
