Litter Clean-Up Programs

 Adopt-A-Highway Program (PennDOT)
Jackson Township in cooperation with PennDOT encourages local groups and organizations to participate in the Adopt-A-Highway Program to help keep our roads clean of litter and garbage.  The program requires an organization to do two clean-ups a year.  PennDOT provides bags, gloves and necessary safety signs.  Most adopted highway segments are in 2 mile increments.  If your organization is interested in adopting a section of road within Jackson Township, please contact PennDOT coordinator, Don Godish at 472-7100, Ext. 211 or contact the Township Office at 749-0725 or via email at roads@jacksontwppa.com  Qualifying State Highways for the Adopt-A-Highway Program are Dishong Mountain Road, Benshoff Hill Road, Chickaree Hill Road, Plank Road, Swigle Mountain Road, US Route 22 and US Route 271.

Jackson Township and PennDOT would like to thank the following organizations who currently participate in the Adopt-A-Highway Program.  Through their hard work and community pride, these adopted sections of road stay a whole lot cleaner to help make Jackson Township a community we can all be proud to live in.

Adopt-A-Township Highway Program

Jackson Township now has an Adopt-A-Township Highway Program for Township roads and streets.  This is a great opportunity for organizations, churches or groups of friends, family and neighbors to adopt a street.  By adopting a street or road in your neighborhood your group will be recognized with signs on each end of the adopted area.  What is expected is at least two litter clean-ups per year.  Jackson Township will provide garbage bags, gloves, safety vests, etc.  If you are interested in adopting a street or road in your neighborhood or anywhere within Jackson Township, just contact the Jackson Township Office at 749-0725.
