The East Hampton Town Highway Department and Recycling and Litter Committee are reactivating the “Adopt-A-Road Program” in an effort to reduce the amount of roadside litter throughout Amagansett, East Hampton, Montauk, Springs and Wainscott.

The program was originally started by former Highway Superintendent Chris Russo in the early 1990s. Based on its initial success, the Highway Department and Recycling and Litter Committee have decided to update the program.

The Highway Department, under the management of Superintendent Steve Lynch, will now help participants choose a road section to adopt and will place a free sign with the participant’s name, business name, or desired message. Adoptees will agree to clean their section at least eight times a year.

To join the “Adopt-A-Road Program,” download and fill out the Adopt-A-Road Agreement at www.town.easthampton.ny.us/DocumentsPDF/Highway/EHAdoptARoadAgreementJune2014.pdf and call the East Hampton Highway Department at 631-324-0925.
