For the second time this year, Brickhouse Environmental spent the day cleaning up a two mile stretch of the Route 322 bypass in West Chester, Pennsylvania. This is part of our ongoing commitment to PennDOT’s Adopt-a-Highway program.
It was a glorious fall day with temperatures in the 60’s. The Brickhouse crew removed over a dozen large bags of litter, a few tires, a car bumper and, ironically, two trash bins! Since first taking on this commitment four years ago, the landscape along this stretch of highway has improved greatly. Like so many other busy highways in the country, the accumulation of litter and lost items never stops, but our efforts are keeping it in check. Since our involvement, the volume of litter collected has decreased from over 35 bags of trash over six months to a little over a dozen.
If you find yourself on the bypass, keep an eye out for the Brickhouse Environmental sign. If you’re lucky, you might even see us on the side of the road doing our part!
