Earth Day Cleanup Events Scheduled

Category: Press Releases       Posted By: Denise Gallagher       Year: 2017

Earth Day is Saturday April 22.  In recognition of that special day, Keep Citrus County Beautiful (KCCB) is cooperating with the Board of County Commissioners and Florida Department of Transportation Adopt-a-Highway (AAH) programs to organize roadside cleanups by many of their existing AAH volunteer groups.

A total of 28 groups agreed to schedule one of their cleanup events during the period between April 17 and April 27 with many of those being on Earth Day. Each group of volunteers received two litter grabber sticks from KCCB in appreciation of their continued participation in these valuable programs.

Did you know that more than 1 billion people now participate in Earth Day activities each year, making it the largest civic observance in the world? Why not join others dedicated to the environmental movement by becoming a roadside cleanup group and adopt a section of road near your home, church, school, social or service club or business. See your name on the sign that identifies your group (2 or more people) as the adopter and be a highway hero!

The State Adopt-a-Highway program covers US 98, US 19, US 41, SR 44 and SR200 and is managed by Jorgensen Contract Services. They currently have less than 10 road segments adopted. Contact Michael James; phone 352-302-1949 to learn more about becoming a roadside cleanup volunteer group.

The County Adopt-a-Highway program covers County-maintained roads and is managed by Citrus County Solid Waste Management Division. They have about 80 road segments adopted. Contact Caresse Kokosinski; phone 352-527-7670 to find out more about becoming a roadside cleanup volunteer group.
