Sharp Campus Adopt-a-Highway

CEOE to conduct "Adopt a Highway" cleanup in conjunction with Delaware's annual "Imagine a Litter Free Delaware"

It is time for the CEOE Sharp Campus's Adopt a Highway cleanup of Pilottown Rd, now scheduled to coincide with Delaware’s annual “Imagine a Litter Free Delaware” on Friday, October 18,  from noon-1:00 p.m.
Those who would like to participate are to meet on the porch of Cannon Laboratory noon.
CEOE will provide all supplies: bags, gloves, safety vests (as needed).  Cleanup is weather dependent and may be rescheduled as needed. 
Delaware’s Adopt-A-Highway Program is a partnership between the Department of Transportation and community organizations. CEOE commits to pick up three times a year (spring, summer, fall), and DelDOT acknowledges UD Sharp Campus participation by placing signs along the adopted roadway – Pilottown Rd.
CEOE Lewes participation was motivated by an accumulation of trash around Canary Creek and marsh. While UD has adopted all of Pilottown, Pilottown neighbors are keeping their yards clean, so the pick up is limited from the campus entrance out to the state boat ramp. If enough volunteers attend, a team will also be sent down the Research Park road. It will take less than 1 hour.
RSVPs are helpful (to determine supply needs) but not necessary.
