ROXBURY, NJ - The Roxbury High School robotics team, called Roxbotix, recently participated in its semi-annual Adopt-a-Road cleanup through the Roxbury Department of Public Works (DPW) in conjunction with Roxbury Clean Communities.

Roxbury’s Clean Communities offers individuals, school groups, churches or businesses a way to be a part of their community with Adopt-a-Road and Adopt-a-Spot projects. The Adopt-a-Road program that Roxbotix took part in is a pledge to adopt a public roadway in Roxbury and make at least two cleanups each year.

The DPW and Clean Communities supplied participants with gloves, bags, vests and Litter Patrol signs as needed.

The robotics team has participated in this program for the last few years. Roxbury Roxbotix is currently the only group within Roxbury Schools participating, but Kellie Ann Keyes from Roxbury Clean Communities said there are plenty of opportunities available for more school groups and organizations to participate.
