THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - Thomas County is getting serious about litter control.   Last year litter collection cost the county government more than $30,000.

To change that, they're establishing a local panel to fight littering. One member says it will take educating the youngest citizens to make a difference. 

"If you get them now while they're young, then whenever they become adults like us then we won't have to worry about the litter control because then it will have been taught to them through the years about keeping our state beautiful," said Marge Willis, Litter Control Chairman for the Thomasville Garden Club.

The litter-fighting panel will be the local arm of the Keep America Beautiful organization.
