And, another year of highway cleanup begins! Following are the 2017 scheduled cleanup days, but with a new twist:
We meet at the Meijer #50 MDOT car pool lot, at 5531 28th Street (corner of Kraft Ave SE and 28th St.). Meet time is 7:45 a.m., where we will have coffee and donuts. We will head out to start cleaning at 8:00 a.m., with each cleanup taking less than 2 hours to complete. Be sure to bring a pair of gloves. MDOT supplies trash bags and safety vests. See you there!
Contact Greg Hoiem for more information or sign-up to become a volunteer...
Your assistance is GREATLY appreciated!
Our Chapter is part of the Michigan Department of Transportation’s (“MDOT”) “Adopt-A-Highway” program.
This is a two-year program, renewable, in which we would be responsible for cleaning up an assigned stretch of highway three times a year. MDOT will provide safety training, safety vests, and litter bags. Along with demonstrating that we are good stewards of our environment, we will get a sign on each side of the road showing SCI-Michigan is the group keeping this portion of the highway clean.
It will give our Chapter more exposure to the public, and, hopefully, help us gain new members! It will also demonstrate that, along with our active hunting programs, we are also dedicated to helping our communities in other ways. This is also a chance for members to get more actively involved in their organization.
We have the 2 mile stretch of I-96 from 28th Street down to Thornapple River Dr.
This is one of the signs we have on our section of I-96.
