Kodagu: Two youths were made to travel 80km from Madikeri to Coorg (Kodagu) to clean up the garbage they had thrown on the highway while traveling.

Reportedly, the duo litterers threw out empty pizza boxes from their car, but the boxes contained the bills, which also mentioned one of their phone numbers.

General Secretary of Kodagu Tourism Association, Madetira Thimmaiah, who spotted the pizza boxes by the side of the road called up the person and requested him to return to the spot and pick up the waste. However, the person refused to do so since he had crossed Coorg already.

Soon the number was then shared with the local police and put on social media. The duo after receiving numerous calls had no choice but to turn around and travel 80kms to come to pick up the boxes.

It is gathered that just days earlier, Madetira Thimmaiah, and other members of the Kadagadalu gram panchayat had conducted a clean-up drive in the area to restore its natural beauty.
