Congratulations to the Waianae Baptist Church who has been selected as the Department of Transportation’s Second Quarter 2014 Adopt-A-Highway Champions!

Waianae Baptist Church, with the help of their friends at Makaha Baptist Church, is committed to keeping a two-mile stretch of highway, spanning from Puhanu Street to Makaha Valley Road, clean and free of trash.

People in the community honk and wave when they see us picking up the trash.”

“We participate in the Adopt-A-Highway program because it helps keep our community clean and makes it a more pleasant place to live,” said Mae Chung, Adopt-A-Highway Team Leader. “People in the community appreciate our efforts, they honk and wave when they see us picking up the trash during our clean-ups.”

Waianae Baptist Church began volunteering their time with the Adopt-A-Highway program in November 2005.

“We mostly find trash like paper cups, straws with plastic cup covers and candy wrappers and very rarely we will find a dead animal that we have to dispose of,” Chung said.

A special thanks to the volunteers at Waianae Baptist Church for their efforts to help prevent trash from entering our storm drains and polluting our waters.
