Adopt A Road Program Reports FY13 Clean Up Totals

As of June 30, there were 362 community groups enrolled in Montgomery County’s Adopt A Road program, in which residents, civic, business, and other groups or individuals volunteer to pick up trash and litter along roadways. About 40 percent of the groups (146) reported they had conducted 520 clean ups that removed 2,262 (32 gallon) bags of trash.

Adopt A Road not only keeps the County looking clean, volunteer activities also protect the County’s streams and creeks from degradation and pollution resulting from harmful litter and debris washing into streams during rain storms.

For more information on the program, including a list of selected candidate roads available for adoption, visit MCDOT’s Adopt A Road website or call the Community Outreach office at 240-777-7155.
