The Mathews fall roadside cleanup will be held from 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Nov. 10, with a rain date set for the following Saturday, Nov. 17.
Twice a year, in spring and fall, the Mathews County Visitor and Information Center holds a countywide cleanup and invites Adopt-a-Highway participants and community members to work together to clean up county roads for the upcoming season, a press release stated.
MCVIC encourages groups of two or more people to meet between 8 and 9 a.m. at their location on 239 Main Street in Mathews to sign in, receive safety and route information, and pick-up equipment.
“We will provide free coffee and donuts and have nets, safety vests, trash bags and gloves available,” said Visitor Center Executive Director Emily Allen. “Groups can choose a road or MCVIC will have a list of high-priority roads.”
Trash will be bagged and left on the roadside for VDOT pickup. Participants must keep count of how many bags they collect.
