Kenvil, NJ (November 16, 2019) – Despite the cold temperatures, members of the Roxbury High School Football hit the road this past Saturday with a clean up to kick off their participation in our Clean Communities Adopt-A-Road program.

As part of the Adopt-A-Road program, the team has adopted Emman’s Road plus the walking path off of Bryant drive to perform at least two times a year (usually in the spring and fall) for two years. This is a great way to promote team camaraderie, civic responsibility and community spirit.

Not only did the team have fun but also felt a sense of satisfaction cleaning up the environment. The group also found some entertainment in the things they found like an exhaust manifold, hub caps, campaign signs and an outdoor skeet thrower.

In just a few hours, the team collected over 125 pounds of trash and recyclables!

During the cleanup a few commented that they had been on the road before the cleanup and didn’t think there was much to pick up. They were surprised once they started working the area to see how much there was!

The team was impressed with the amount of material they were able to collect, seeing right away that they had made a difference in the area.

Keeping the road and pathway free of litter and debris helps keep our town safe and clean. Another opportunity for the team to display our community’s pride and ownership.

Do you feel frustrated by seeing litter lying around your street, park or our roadways? Then why not adopt that spot and volunteer to help keep your spot litter-free. We will provide free resources to help.
