Milton Launching Adopt-A-Road Program

Civic-minded organizations, businesses needed for litter cleanup
The City of Milton, in conjunction with Keep North Fulton Beautiful, is launching an Adopt-A-Road program and is seeking interested organizations who want to help clean up roadways in the new city.The objective of the Adopt-A-Road program is to reduce litter by allowing the community to assume responsibility for sections of the public right-of-way. Any civic-minded organization such as garden clubs, church groups, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, high school clubs and organizations, businesses, business associations, even individuals can adopt a stretch of roadway. Participants must be at least 12 years old and participants 17 years old and younger must have parental permission.Adopting organizations must sign an Adopt-A-Road agreement making a minimum two-year commitment to the program and participate in safety training/orientation. Adopted road segments will measure a minimum of one mile and city officials have final approval of all routes. Organizations must perform litter clean up at least four times a year; additional clean ups are encouraged on an as-needed basis but are not required.The city provides basic supplies such as vests, gloves, trash bags and “grabbers” to pick up the litter.

Organizations interested in participating should contact either Linda Blow, project coordinator, at / 678.242.2489 or volunteer organizer Tim Enloe at / 770 653 0552. You can also print and fill out the required Adopt-A-Road forms and fax them to 678.242.2499.
