It’s now easier to register groups for “trash patrol” along the state’s highways. The State Transportation Department has streamlined its Adopt-A-Highway program. Rules no longer limit which groups can participate, groups can now register online, and participants must be at least 10 years of age. Spokesman Jeff Briggs says the changes are meant to help streamline the nearly 20-year-old program. Missouri was one of the first states to offer the program. More than 37-hundred participants currently monitor 52-hundred miles of state highway.
