Cleaning up in Cranberry!
Our Adopt-A-Roadway program is marking its 23rd year. Volunteers are individual Township residents, family and neighborhood groups, Township-based business owners and their employees, and members of local organizations.
The program is responsible for clearing debris from approximately 30 miles of the Township’s connector road network at least twice a year. Altogether, 22 groups – businesses, families, clubs and associations – have committed to cleaning their section of roadway. Sections range from half a mile to nearly two miles in length. Some groups do it more frequently than others. But their work is limited to a three month window in the spring and fall.
Our Adopt-A-Roadway program collects, on average, over 230 full bags of litter, and exceeds 400 participating volunteer hours annually. Between 1997 and 2016, more than 4,800 bags of litter was collected. Including - scrap metal, wood, pipe, plastic, carpeting, wire, cardboard, tires, wheels, gas tanks, toilets, computers, light bulbs, bowling balls, hockey sticks, mufflers, hubcaps, a bed frame, signs, washing machines, a plastic sandbox, buckets, antennas, aquariums, mailboxes, a car hood, a truck tailgate, a saxophone case, brooms, a portable baby crib, stereos, disc brakes, and an electric motor.
Volunteers are issued safety vests, traffic warning signs, pickup tongs, garbage bags, and other necessities by the Public Works Department. A list of safety precautions is reviewed with each participating entity. Signs acknowledging the adoptive organization are posted along their roadway.
Roads become available for adoption when new roadways are added or when participating organizations leave the program.
