The Time Has Come


Halt Road Debris at its Source !!!



In an effort to stem the amount of debris on the 101, we are diligently working on an initiative that would require all trucks to tarp their load.  


All states, including California, have a state law that requires loads to be covered.  However, CA law is open to interpretation.  Our local CHP will not enforce unless we have a county ordinance requiring loads to be covered.  Our goal is to work with our Marin County Supervisors to enact an such an ordinance.


This is a win-win for everyone.  Less debris, less work and cost for Caltrans cleanup, and a revenue generator from the citations.  


We are seeking endorsements from local businesses, residents, civic and environmental groups and elected officials.  Here is how YOU can help by signing this letter of endorsement for a Marin County tarp ordinance.

Please make your check payable to Marin Clean Highways and send to Marin Link for processing.

We are local residents, concerned about unsightly litter on our roadways.  Sharing this same feeling with many Marin residents, we decided to take action in an effort to rid our County of this blight.  


We are diligently working with government officials in Marin County to resolve this problem. Marin Clean Highways is proud to be an affiliate of MarinLink, a non-profit incubator for community based projects. 


We invite you to join us in this community effort.
