The fall Adopt-A-Highway pickup, scheduled from Sept. 26 through Oct. 4, wraps up 25 years of volunteers keeping Michigan’s highway roadsides clean!
Three times a year, volunteer crews perform a valuable community service by picking up litter and debris from the highway roadsides in their designated area. Adopt-A-Highway volunteers collect about 70,000 bags of litter annually, an estimated $5 million value to the state.
Sections of highway are still available for adoption. Volunteers include members of civic groups, businesses and families. Participants must be at least 12 years old and each group must include at least three people. Check the MDOT website at www.michigan.gov/adoptahighway for more information.
