WALKER COUNTY, Ala. (WIAT) — A Walker County Commissioner is trying to reduce litter in his district by installing “Litter Cameras.”
County Commissioner for District 4 Steven Aderholt came up with the idea to install the cameras throughout the district.
Aderholt says there are around 25 are set up throughout his district. He tells CBS 42 News over the phone he could not get into detail on how the cameras work, but did say since the cameras were installed in 2014 he’s seen litter decrease by 75 percent in his district.
Lillie Adams lives near a camera and said she has noticed a difference since it went up.
“They have been working pretty well. Everything used to be thrown out on both sides of the road, but you don’t see hardly anything out there now,” said Adams.
