State of Mississippi – 2000

Conducted a visible litter survey of 104 primary sites, plus 9 landfill access route sites. The survey found that Mississippi has a fairly serious litter problem with litter rates along rural freeways and other rural state highways found to be about a third higher than the average of other states surveyed. Actually, about two thirds of all the litter encountered by motorists and pedestrians was estimated to be along rural freeways and other rural state highways. In contrast to rural freeways and roadways, urban freeways and streets had below average litter rates.
