Officials seeking volunteers for West Virginia spring Adopt-A-Highway cleanup on April 25


CHARLESTON, West Virginia — The state Department of Environmental Protection is accepting registrations for the Adopt-A-Highway Spring Statewide Cleanup.

Officials say volunteers have until April 10 to register for the event that takes place on April 25. The event is co-sponsored by the DEP and the state Division of Highways, the Adopt-A-Highway.

Individuals, families, churches, businesses, schools, civic organizations, government agencies and communities can register to pick up trash on almost any state-maintained road, back road, or main route.

Volunteers must be at least 12 years old to participate. They will be provided garbage bags, work gloves and safety vests. The state also takes care of disposing of collected trash.

Officials say more than 4,800 volunteers turned out for the spring 2014 Adopt-A-Highway spring cleanup and cleared over 1,500 miles of West Virginia roadways.
