Volunteers across state will be out in full force as the Michigan Department of Transportation kicks off its annual “Adopt-A-Highway” cleanup project.
Spring cleaning begins Saturday for highway roadsides in metro Detroit.
Adopt-A-Highway volunteers are preparing for the final clean sweep of state highways from Saturday, Sept. 24, through Sunday, Oct. 2.
The Michigan Department of Transportation’s popular litter cleanup program will send about 32,000 volunteers out on Michigan highways from July 9-17, in the second of three scheduled pickups this year.
More than 3,000 groups collected 80,000 bags of trash and saved taxpayers more than $1.5 million in cleanup costs.
Freeways are often the first and last impression visitors have of the Metro Detroit area.
