Lacey kicked off its Volunteer Litter Pickup Program yesterday, September 6, at the regular meeting of the city’s Transportation Committee.
Transportation Maintenance Supervisor Scott Johnston said the program would allow citizens to contribute to a “cleaner environment and enhanced roadside appearance.”
“Any activity undertaken as part of this program must be in the primary interest of the traveling public and contribute to an improved visual and environmental condition,” Johnston’s presentation read.
The program is open to any individual, family, organization, business, corporation, or a combination of groups.
All participants must be at least 15 years old. However, minors must submit a signed parental consent.
Each volunteer organization must have a designated leader. During roadside clean-up or enhancement, Johnston explained that at least one adult supervisor should be present for every eight minors.
Johnston said the Volunteer Litter Pickup Program differs from the Adopt-A-Roadway Program as the latter requires a two-year commitment.
