Report Your Activity


Autumn is here, which means cooler weather. Taking advantage of the cooler weather, adopters are hitting the roadsides for litter pick-up.  Please watch for these volunteers and drive safe!

If you know of a group that would like to become part of the Adopt-A-Highway program, give us a call. We would love to talk with you about the program! It is never too late to join! We just couldn't keep the roadsides this beautiful without the volunteers in the program!


If you have any questions, please always feel free to contact us.

Macon a Difference

The Macon Elementary Student Council, located in Macon, Missouri, was very excited to submit an entry for the trash can contest this year. Last year was the first year for the Elementary Student Council. The very first project the Student Council worked on was implementing a recycling program in the elementary. This program works in conjunction with Diversified Industries of Macon. Each room in the elementary has a recycling box for paper. Everyday Student Council representatives collect the recycled paper, bag it up, and leave it in a designated location to be picked up for treatment. This has been a very successful project and has greatly reduced the amount of trash, while bettering the Earth. For the trash can contest, each Student Council representative suggested different themes for the trash can. Since the recycling program at the school was started by Student Council, their inspiration for the theme was from the school and the school mascot, the tiger. The theme chosen was, “We’re MACON a difference by recycling!”
