Want to help beautify
your community? 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
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 2017 are: April 15-23, July 15-23 and Sept. 23 to Oct.
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.
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.
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.
can help augment the effort by slowing down when volunteers are seen picking up
trash along approximately 453 miles of roadways and join RCOC in reminding
others not to litter.
