Anyone traveling along Highway M-134 in Cedarville, Mich., might notice that stretch of highway is particularly pristine and beautiful. That’s because a team of volunteers from Carmeuse's Cedarville operation and Local USW 182 recently teamed up for their annual Adopt-A-Highway pick-up week.
"Participation from Cedarville and USW 182 was great and the teams enjoyed excellent weather for their work," according to the company. "A great deal of trash was collected and that particular section of highway was significantly more beautiful when the volunteers were finished."
More than 6,400 miles of Michigan highways are part of the Adopt-A-Highway program. Participants typically adopt both sides of a two-mile section of state highway roadside to clean up for at least a two-year period. Since 1990, Adopt-A-Highway local groups have collected over a million bags of trash.
