Adopt a Roadway

Adopt a Road in Anderson Township A New Program
Sponsored by the Betterment and Beautification Citizens Committee

Concept

Litter on the Township roads is a continuing issue. The program is modeled after the “Adopt a Highway” programs that have been successful in keeping roads and other areas litter-free. This new effort is designed to work through Homeowners and Business Associations, Neighborhood and Business Watch programs, and other public and private organizations within the Township by having them adopt a Township Road that is bordering their neighborhood and using members of their associations to periodically pick up litter on the adopted road.

Support

The Township would provide gloves and bags used for the pickups. The bags would be left at the side of the road and picked up by the Township personnel. The Township will provide liability release forms for the HOA to use for each citizen that participates in the effort. Any hazardous materials encountered during a pickup event will be left in place. After notification of these “finds” is given to the Township, appropriate Township personnel would go to the site and remove such materials.

Neighborhoods

We ask you to buy into the concept to provide this Community Service effort by your neighborhood. It is assumed that you have established ways of soliciting your neighbors to ask for their involvement. It is suggested that clean ups occur six times each year (two of those times could co-inside with the Township’s Great American Cleanup and Make a Difference Day that takes place each year).Provide to your participating neighbors the clean up materials, provided instructions, and obtain the liability forms and return them to the Township.

Recognition

Neighborhoods and the roads they have adopted will be listed on the Township website and periodically in Township publications. Shirts for involvement will be provided to participants.

How

If you have found interested participants in your neighborhood call or email Paul Drury at 688-8400 or pdrury@andersontownship.org. He will answer any questions you have and suggest specific roads that would be appropriate for your group to adopt.
