Community: Final quarterly clean-up event
Prescott Golf and Country Club
This Saturday, Nov. 17, many people will take to the roadways, picking up trash along Highways 69 and 169 in Yavapai County, and other highways and byways across the state in a final quarterly clean-up event. One Arizona Department of Transportation participant in the Adopt-A-Highway program will be out with students, families and volunteers from 9-11 a.m. near the Prescott Country Club on Highway 69.
Volante Academy of the Arts signed up for that one-mile stretch about three or four years ago, said Jan Luke, executive director. She and her volunteers keep on top of picking up litter on both sides of the highway four times a year, she said. The academy is seeking help with the actual trash collection, and also for sponsors who will donate to the academy for every black garbage bag they fill with trash.
Gary Chamberlain, founder and coordinator of the statewide clean-up events, said Adopt-A-Highway groups collected 404 bags of trash on 30 consecutive miles of Highways 260 and 89A on a weekend in November this past year. He encourages every county in Arizona to take part in this year’s task, as “we all are winners with a cleaner state.” He sets aside four Saturdays a year to promote Adopt-A-Highway clean-up events.
