Oh what a beautiful morning it is in Oklahoma the
day after the Department of Transportation’s annual statewide TRASH-OFF
each April. The 14th version of the spring cleanup this year proudly
announced the hard work of 188 participating communities in 19
counties, 30 state parks, three Corps of Engineers lakes and thousands
of Adopt-A-Highway volunteers.
Administered by ODOT’s Beautification Office,
TRASH-OFF makes good use of in-state partnerships, publicity and
recycled hubcap awards to attract a growing number of volunteers each
year. The true keys to success, however, are the communities,
neighborhood volunteers, park rangers, city employees and others who
take the opportunity and creatively run with it.
For changing bad habits and trading trash for tributes, ODOT’S ANNUAL “TRASH-OFF” IS GOOD NEWS FOR OKLAHOMA’S PUBLIC AREAS AND ROADSIDES!
