NATCHEZ, Miss. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - Approximately 400,000 gallons of trash will be dumped on the sides of Adams County roads this year.

Sheriff's Office Major Charles Harrigill tells The Natchez Democrat that figure is according to what inmate crews picked up last year in the county.

Harrigill recently took over the litter control program after the resignation of the county's litter control officer last year.

Harrigill said crews picked up 6,200 40-gallon bags of trash on county-owned roads and 3,800 bags on state-owned roads that run through Adams County in 2013.

Harrigill said the county is on track to have the same amount of trash to pick up this year.
