Milton launches reinvigorated Adopt-A-Road program

That old eyesore, roadside litter, has a newly invigorated foe in the city of Milton.

A volunteer committee of Milton residents called Milton Grows Green have revamped the city's adopt-a-road program. They  hope to encourage more citizens and civic groups to remove trash from the roadways.

Seventeen road segments will be kept clean by citizen volunteers, several of whom renewed previous commitments. The program involves new signs that feature the committee logo and a customized recognition sign for the sponsor of the designated road.

Citizens can volunteer to keep clean a 1-mile stretch of road, with a commitment to clean the road a least four times a year. Program information, instructions and forms for sign-up are available at Citizens may also contact Gina Schwendel, MGG's program coordinator, at 678-242-2500 for more details.
