CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Hundreds of citizens around the state are expected to be out on the roadways this weekend, cleaning up.
Saturday is the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection (WVDEP)’s Adopt-A-Highway fall statewide cleanup.
Individuals, families, churches, businesses, schools, civic organizations, government agencies, and communities have registered and can continue to register to pick up trash on almost any state-maintained road, back road, or main route. The WVDEP said since the program started in 1988, citizens have cleaned up close to 70,000 miles of state highways and roads during annual spring and fall AAH events.
Garbage bags, work gloves, and safety vests will be given to any volunteers to while working to clean up the trash. Any volunteer must be at least 12 years old to participate and registration is encouraged.
