ROXBURY, NJ - Someday, maybe they'll create a robot to do it, but for now members of the Roxbury High School Roxbotix robotics team used their arms and legs when they recently participated in their second Adopt-a-Road clean up of this year.
As part of the Roxbury Clean Communities program, the team members tackled Righter Road on May 9. Roxbotix adopted this section of road in Succasunna, where it conducts roadside cleanups each spring and fall and receives small mini-grants to help fund their program.
Under the supervision of Lee Hayden, Roxbury’s robotics advisor, juniors Brodie Hageneder, Dustin La, Chris Libby, Rowan Luppnow and AJ Marasco along with sophomores Rodante Alea, Walter Jacobus, Jason Lew, Bevan Luppnow, Jordan Migneault and Caedon Roushinko, donned orange vests and work gloves to clean up trash near Roxbury High School where many students park during the week while school is in session.
The Clean Communities program is a comprehensive litter abatement program serving New Jersey residents and visitors. The basic mission is to reduce litter in public places, promote the volunteer cleanup of public lands and to sustain a reduction in litter through education.
Roxbury Clean Communities has a simple and fun way to be a part of the community. Individuals, school groups, churches, and businesses donate time to continue to keep Roxbury beautiful.
