ANNUAL STATEWIDE SPRING CLEAN-UP TO TAKE PLACE ON SATURDAY, APRIL 26
Join thousands of Adopt-A-Highway volunteers to pick up litter from Virginia roadsides
FREDERICKSBURG - On Saturday, April 26 thousands of volunteers that participate in VDOT’s Adopt-A-Highway program will be out sprucing up Virginia’s roadsides as part of the annual Spring Clean-up.
The Adopt-A-Highway program is among the largest litter control programs in the county. The program is made up of volunteers that agree to keep a two-mile section of a state-maintained road free of litter for a three year period.
In return, VDOT will install signs at the beginning and the end of their adopted section of road displaying the group or individual’s name. The signs raise awareness to the group’s commitment to the community and to a cleaner environment.
VDOT encourages individuals, groups and businesses to rally together on Saturday, April 26 to support the statewide clean-up effort, even if you are not an Adopt-A-Highway participant.
To join an Adopt-A-Highway group or looking for an area to pick up litter near you, contact your local AAH Coordinator. The coordinator will match you with a group or an individual in your area that may need extra volunteers or recommend an area that needs attention.
To learn more about the Adopt-A-Highway program, become a volunteer or to participate in the statewide Spring Clean up call 1-800-PRIDE-VA or visit www.VirginiaDOT.org.
