On March 3, 17 Democratic Club of Quail Creek (DCQC) members and friends got together for the Democratic Club’s first trash collection effort as part of Sahuarita’s Adopt-a-Roadway program. They picked up an impressive 32 bags of trash, a pile of PVC pipe, a 9 by 4 foot plywood sign, a pile of rebar, assorted whiskey and tequila bottles, and more than a few beer containers. John Garcia, a representative for the town of Sahuarita, was very complimentary of the DCQC’s work.
Public Works provides adopters safety signage and training, clean-up equipment (trash bags, reflective vests, gloves, and trash pickers), and removes the collected trash after each clean-up. As a thank you, the town provides two signs along the adopted road acknowledging the affiliated group.
This was a great opportunity to give back to our community, as we all can appreciate the cleaned-up roadway into our neighborhood. The next clean-up event will be in early June, so, if you’re interested, please watch for information on our qcdemocrats.org webpage, our Facebook page, or sign-up for our newsletter to get dates and times for the next road clean-up.
