RCOC Seeking Partners To Help Beautify County

Want to help beautify your community? If so, the Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC) has just the opportunity for you: There are roads available as part of the Adopt-A-Road program.

Volunteer groups that adopt a road segment are asked to pick up litter along the road during two of the three available cleanup periods each year (spring, summer and fall). Cleanup dates for 2017 are April 15-23, July 15-23 and September 23 to October 1.
