Want to help beautify your community? Tired of seeing trash along roadways? If so, the Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC) has just the opportunity for you: There are roads available as part of the Adopt-A-Road program.
Volunteer groups that adopt a road segment are asked to pick up litter along the road during two of the three available cleanup periods each year (spring, summer and fall). Cleanup dates for 2018 are: April 14-22, July 14-22 and Sept. 22-30.
Any group interested in adopting a paved county road section should call the RCOC Permits Division at 248-858-4891 or send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Interested organizations will receive orange safety vests, training and garbage bags.
Additionally, RCOC will erect Adopt-A-Road signs at both ends of the designated road sections recognizing the volunteer groups responsible for sections. Road segments are approved by the RCOC Board of Road Commissioners.
Participating groups are reminded to call the RCOC Permits Division to arrange pick up of litter bags after the clean-up. Additionally, RCOC relies on groups to call and verify that contact information is current. Groups needing additional garbage bags or orange vests can also call the Permits Division.
Motorists can help augment the effort by slowing down when volunteers are picking up trash along approximately 453 miles of roadways and by joining RCOC in reminding others not to litter.
