DISTRICT 10 INTRODUCES SAM, WHO IS HELPING CALTRANS ELIMINATE LITTER & DEBRIS FROM CALIFORNIA HIGHWAYS 

SAN JOAQUIN COUNTY – Litter is a glaring problem on California highways, as well as on surface streets, parks and other once-green parcels across the state. Caltrans District 10 and Clean California are determined to make the Golden State green once again!

Caltrans District 10, serving the Northern San Joaquin Valley and Sierra Nevada, is working closely with Clean California, our partnering city and county agencies and Adopt-A-Highway volunteers, to remove litter from highways across the region. 

We also have our own maintenance crews on the roadway, plucking bottles and cans, fast-food wrappers, cardboard and other items. Now we have another tool in this battle against blight: Caltrans has created a program to hire entry-level maintenance workers (Service Assistant Maintenance, or SAM).
