Environmental Resources Roadshows showcase community beautification tools

PHOENIX — The Arizona Department of Transportation joins the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality and Keep Arizona Beautiful to conduct an Environmental Resources Roadshow in Yavapai County on  Oct. 7 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Prescott Police Department Training Room, 222 S. Marina Street in Prescott.

Community members, business people, public officials and school representatives in Prescott and the surrounding area are invited to attend this two-hour event. Following brief presentations, attendees can engage in open dialogue in a question-and-answer session.

ENVIRONMENTAL RESOURCES ROADSHOW

  • ADOT: volunteer process for adopting sections of Arizona highways for litter cleanup
  • ADEQ: how communities can benefit from ADEQ’s technical expertise and Brownfields grants
  • ADEQ: successful municipal recycling programs, such as electronic waste and food recovery
  • KAZB: statewide litter prevention, recycling and beautification programs

More than 620 ADOT Adopt a Highway volunteer groups pick up litter along 744 miles of highway in northern Arizona. These groups are just a small sample of the hundreds of thousands of groups who participate in the nationally and internationally recognized Adopt a Highway volunteer litter prevention program.

Over the years, the ADOT Adopt a Highway volunteer program has provided a multimillion-dollar labor value to Arizona taxpayers and helps keep our highways clean.

BACKGROUND

ADOT’s Adopt a Highway volunteer program began in 1988 in Globe, Arizona. Today there are volunteers in every county of the Grand Canyon State, especially in rural Arizona, where volunteer litter pickup provides big savings in maintenance costs.
