Virginia is for Lovers, not Litter Skip to main content


Virgina and heart

The Virginia Department of Transportation created Virginia is for Lovers, Not Litter to raise awareness about Virginia’s litter challenge and to promote ways to preserve Virginia’s picturesque roadways, landscapes and views.

Garbage and heart

Virginia has no love for litter, which is why Virginia is for Lovers, Not Litter aims to spark the conversation about keeping our beloved state litter-free. More trash cans and litter pick-up events are not the only solutions. We believe more pride, responsibility and love for Virginia is what it takes to keep it exquisite.

Map and heart

We want others to feel Virginia’s love, too. Tourism is a key economic driver for Virginia, and we want to leave a lasting impression on our guests. Virginia should be remembered for its beauty, hospitality and people – not for its litter.

Pen and heart

Be a lover, not a litterer. Take the No Love for Litter Pledge and encourage others to spread the love, not litter, on Virginia’s roadways.
