Members of the Coudersport Rotary Club joined together earlier this week to perform litter removal services along the 2-mile stretch of State Route 6 East between the Coudersport Area High School and the Laurelwood Inn.

In just 1.5 hours, the Club was able to remove approximately (8) bags of litter and other debris.

According to Mark Benson, Rotary Member, “The most prevalent form of litter along that stretch of Route 6 is usually cigarette butts and plastic soda bottles, however this time we also found a substantial amount of carriage bolts and nuts and other construction debris.”

The litter removal program, better known as Adopt-a-Highway, a Potter County PennDOT Maintenance program, is one of the means by which the Rotary Club provides community service each year.  Those interested in volunteering can call the Coudersport Rotary Club at 203-3933 or the Adopt-a-Highway program coordinator directly at 274-9181.
