HILLSBOROUGH, NJ - The Hillsborough-Millstone Municipal Alliance, also known as BoroAWARE, has partnered with the NJ Adopt-A-Highway litter removal program to clean up a one-mile stretch of Route 206 on Saturday, June 20
Volunteers from the Municipal Alliance will be taking to the roadway, not only to clean up litter, but to bring awareness to the drug and alcohol prevention programs provided by the Alliance and their partners.
Travelers along Route 206 may see the NJDOT signature "Adopt a Highway" orange caution signs at the beginning and end of the targeted mile-long stretch of the state highway where volunteers will be working.
“We are thankful for the members and volunteers of the Municipal Alliance, going above and beyond to raise awareness for the various programs and initiatives to educate our community on the importance of substance abuse education and prevention,” said Mayor Doug Tomson.
All Governor Executive Orders, including social distancing requirements will be in place.
