Those who sign up to volunteer may meet at The Crew Restaurant, 3810 E. Cork St., Kalamazoo, for breakfast at 8 a.m. or park at the back corner of restaurant before 8:45 a.m. and join the group for some quick safety tips before heading out to begin picking up trash.

Before taking part in the Adopt a Highway event, those planning to participate must sign up as a volunteer and watch two safety videos that are less than five minutes long.
