Milton’s Adopt-A-Road program has grown

At a recent city council meeting, Milton’s Conservation Project Manager, Teresa Stickels, updated the council on the city’s Adopt-A-Road program. The program, designed to reduce litter along Milton’s roadways and protect Milton’s waterways, has grown from 17 road segments in 2019 to 41 road segments in 2021.

Stickels noted that in addition to reducing litter and protecting waterways, the program promotes civic pride and responsibility, creates public awareness of the environmental costs of littering, saves taxpayer dollars, and is a visible reminder we are all stewards of the land.

The program is open to businesses, churches, schools and civic organizations willing to commit to a minimum of 4 cleanup efforts each year. The city provides vests, gloves and trash bags to participants.
