Adopt-A-Highway collection begins

The last Adopt-A-Highway pickup along state roadways is about to get underway.
Participants in the Michigan Department of Transportation program will be collecting litter along highway roadsides from Saturday through Oct. 2.
There are three scheduled Adopt-A-Highway pickups each year: one each in the spring, summer and fall.
Every year, Adopt-A-Highway crews collect about 70,000 bags of trash. The volunteer efforts of nearly 3,200 Adopt-A-Highway groups generate about $5 million annually in value for state taxpayers.
Volunteers include members of civic groups, businesses and families. Groups are asked to adopt a section of highway for at least two years; there is no fee to participate.
