"Adopt a Highway" anyone?

Hey guys and gals.

Taco Gunner made a post about all the trash he has seen on the trails and it got me thinking. Why can't we do something big to help out? We're all here to have fun, meet new people, learn about our trucks and all the glorious mods but how can we give back and stand out from the rest.

Why not Adopt a Highway? We would only need to do it a few times a year and it would make a huge difference. Wouldn't it be awesome to see an "Adopted by Arizona Tacoma World" sign on the side of the road? Who knows, it might catch on and other regions will start one up. I'll get the ball rolling if anyone is interested.

The Adopt a Highway Volunteer Program is a national litter awareness program where groups volunteer to pick up litter from Arizona's roadsides. Groups include civic and community groups, families, and businesses.

In 2009, nearly 2,000 volunteer groups participated in removing litter from Arizona's highways. Volunteering in the Adopt a Highway program requires a two-year commitment to pick up loose trash and debris along a segment of state highway. Groups agree to conduct cleanups based upon the frequency written into their Permit, usually three to four times a year. Scenic and historic highways may require higher frequencies. Your group coordinator will schedule the date and time of each cleanup with your ADOT contact and review the provided safety training to ALL participants before each cleanup activity.
It is recommended that you maintain a working group of six to ten people per two mile segment of highway.
Each member of your group MUST read and sign the Volunteer Registration Form. ADOT will supply trash bags for your group. Filled trash bags need to be placed on the ground approximately 6 – 10 feet from the roadway for ADOT crews to remove and dispose of.
Volunteers are required to wear safety vests labeled ANSI Class II. Groups should be prepared to supply their own safety vests.
Please check first with your ADOT contact regarding safety vests. If we have vests on hand, we’d be happy to loan some to you, but please follow instructions from District Coordinator about returning any loaned vests back to ADOT. Vests that you purchase are yours to keep.
After your cleanup, complete the online Activity Report detailing your cleanup. The report indicates the hours worked, the number of participants, and the number of bags of trash removed.
Still want to become one of the thousands of dedicated volunteers keeping our highways clean and safe?
Contact the District Office for your area to become involved with the Adopt a Highway Volunteer Program.
The District Adopt a Highway Coordinator will provide you with a Permit Application to complete and submit. Be sure to read the application, both front and back, and retain a copy for your records.

I'll help with this.

Perhaps something along the lines of Arizona Tacoma Owners though.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Great idea OP. I say keep it Arizona TacomaWorld Members in it since it'd be our thing. Its not just random tacoma owners doing it. It'd be the members of this site helping out.

I am down with this...

Honestly, with as many people as we have here, we could do a pretty good stretch of road.

I think it would not also be a bad ideal to pick a park, or trail, and do some clean up.

I am between Tucson and Phoenix a lot...let me know where to show up!
