For our newest service project, I received permission from the Suffolk County Department of Public Works (SCDPW) to become part of their "Adopt-A-Highway" program. We started collecting in September and continued until December. The SCDPW, does not allow pick-ups during the winter months for safety reasons. Consequently, we re-started the program in March of 2022 and we will continue until December of this year and beyond.
Our "Mile of Montauk", as I like to refer to it, is from Tanner's Neck Lane in Westhampton to Mill Rd in Speonk, one mile west on Montauk Highway. Once a month, Rotarians get together and clean-up the highway. The SCDPW has supplied us with all the equipment we need including, garbage bags, pickers, gloves and the ever popular - safety vests!
