Upshur County Solid Waste Authority Looking For Volunteers for Adopt-A-Highway Program

BUCKHANNON -

 

The Upshur County Solid Waste Authority is once again looking for volunteers to participate in West Virginia's Adopt-A-Highway Program.

Last year, the program had 75 volunteers remove 1,400 pounds of litter and debris from public lands in Upshur County, including four acres of parks.

Volunteer organizations and individuals can choose a segment of road to adopt and agree to clean at least three times per year.

"It really both helps visitors and residents alike to better appreciate our state, and I think you feel better when your driving down the road if you not seeing a lot of litter on the side of the road," said Callie Cronin Sams, district environmental coordinator, West Virginia District Environmental Protection.

If you're interested in Adopt-A-Highway, Adopt-A-Spot or the West Virginia "Make It Shine" program, an informational meeting will be held March 13, at 6:30 p.m. at Buckhannon Upshur Middle School.

If you want to learn more about the program visit the state's DEP website.
