MARTINSBURG, W.Va. (AP) - A Berkeley County couple has donated $500,000 to fight roadside litter in the county.

The donation from Bill and Bonnie Stubblefield will be used to establish an endowed fund with the Eastern West Virginia Community Foundation.

Bill Stubblefield is a former county commissioner and the founder of Berkeley Community Pride, which promotes recycling, litter control and education. He tells The Journal (https://bit.ly/1Fp3dRx ) that roadside litter is one of the greatest blights in the county.

He says there have been numerous past attempts to address roadside litter. But the problem remains.

The new effort would be managed by Berkeley Community Pride and financed through the endowed fund.

Stubblefield says he hopes others will donate to the fund. The goal is a $1 million endowment.
