Adopt-A-Highway cleanup begins

Motorists along state routes are advised to use extra caution, as the second Adopt-A-Highway roadside cleanup event of the year begins Saturday and continues over an eight-day period.
Thousands of Adopt-A-Highway volunteers will be back picking up litter along state roadways starting Saturday, as they’ve done each summer since 1990.
Every year, Adopt-A-Highway volunteers collect about 70,000 bags of trash, for a total of more than 2 million bags in 25 years. Last year alone, Adopt-A-Highway cleanups generated a $5 million value for state taxpayers.
Sections of highway are still available for adoption. Interested groups can get more information at www.michigan.gov/adoptahighway.
The year’s final Adopt-A-Highway pickup is scheduled for the fall, from Sept. 26 to Oct. 4.
