Last Adopt-A-Highway Pickup of Year Begins Saturday

Michigan Department of Transportation

The last Adopt-A-Higway pickup of the year begins Saturday and runs through September 29th. Volunteers in the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) program have been picking up litter along state highways since 1990.

There are three scheduled Adopt-A-Highway pickups every year: one each in spring, summer and fall. In 2012, Adopt-A-Highway volunteer groups reported collecting about 65,000 bags of trash, a cost benefit to the state of $5.6 million.

State Transportation Director Kirk T. Steudle said “Adopt-A-Highway volunteers across the state are to be commended for another year of helping to keep Michigan beautiful.”

Motorists should keep an eye out for Adopt-A-Highway crews clad in high-visibility, yellow-green safety vests. MDOT provides the vests and trash bags for free, and arranges to haul away the trash.

Sections of highway are still available for adoption. Interested groups should check the MDOT Web page at www.michigan.gov/adoptahighway for more information.
