Shawnee County Adopt-A-Roadway
We received the following Media Release from Shawnee County's Public Information Officer, Amanda Monhollon:
"Topeka, Kan. – Beginning, October 15, 2022, from 7:00am to 9:00am Mars Wrigley will be hosting their second pick-up event on the north side of Gary Ormsby Drive. Mars Wrigley is Shawnee County’s first Adopt-A-Roadway group participant. Mars Wrigley Topeka associates and immediate family members (at least 13 years old) will be participating in this event.
“Mars Wrigley associates are excited about this program and hopefully we can get more organizations to follow in Shawnee County’s Adopt-A-Roadway program,” said Mike Heatwole, Supply Excellence Manager, Mars Wrigley.
“Shawnee County appreciates all the volunteers’ efforts who assist in the pickup events along the Shawnee County roadways,” said Curt Niehaus, Director of Shawnee County Public Works. “We hope more civic-minded businesses in Shawnee County take the opportunity to adopt a roadway.”
The Shawnee County Adopt-A-Roadway program is designed to allow groups or businesses with an interest in keeping our roadways litter-free a chance to perform valuable service to their community. Shawnee County Public Works provides trash bags and an ANSI Class II safety vest and Shawnee County Solid Waste will pick up the filled trash bags for each pickup event.
Motorists should be on the lookout for the groups as they clean the roadsides.
