2017 Adopt-A-Highway trash pickup

Let’s talk trash — pickin’ up trash, that is! For almost 20 years, the North Carolina Roadrunners Club has been keeping clean the 1-mile stretch of Millbrook Road in Raleigh going from Shelley Lake to Creedmoor Road. Come join other volunteers for a fun, social morning! It’s some of the easiest NCRC volunteer points you can earn! Fashion-trending safety vests, bags, gloves, and post-pickup refreshments provided! (NCDOT requires that volunteers must be at least 12 years old and that children 12-17 be supervised by an adult at least 21 years old.) We will meet in the parking lot at the Sertoma Arts Center / Shelley Lake at 9:00 a.m. to get organized!

It’s no problem staying socially distant while picking up trash! And the sunshine and time outside will be good for you! Please bring a face mask or bandana just in case it makes others feel more comfortable — and it may come in handy if you find trash that stinks!

Usually there are some juices, coffee and snacks afterwards back at the Sertoma Arts Center / Shelley Lake parking lot after the cleanup! Stick around and socialize if you can! For more information and directions, check out our Facebook event.
