The Delaware Department of Transportation is encouraging Adopt-A-Highway volunteers and others to help clean up Delaware’s roadsides during the department’s 13th annual Imagine A Litter-Free Delaware event between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Oct. 20-21.

Participants are recommended to wear safety vests that DelDOT has provided to Adopt-A-Highway volunteers.

During 2016, Adopt-A-Highway volunteers picked up about 2,000 of the nearly 32,000 bags of trash collected along Delaware’s roads.

The rain date will be Oct. 28 and Oct. 29.

For more on adopting a highway roadside, call 326-4523 for New Castle County, 760-2413 for Kent County or 853-1315 for Sussex County.
