GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. During the winter months our highways become more cluttered with trash. The Colorado Department of Transportation is encouraging community members to join them for springtime cleaning through the "adopt a highway" program.

C-DOT provides volunteers with litter bags, safety vests, and safety instructions before a group goes out. Volunteers with Roman Family Chiropractic have been involved with the program the last seven years.

"We have volunteers come in the summer time and we get together and go and make the world a better place by keep the highway clean. I’ll tell you when you clean a stretch of highway, you drive that highway a little differently because you want to keep it clean," says Dr. Randy Roman, of Roman Family Chiropractic. Dr. Roman says he enjoys volunteering and donating his time.

The program has seen a lot of success in Grand Junction, with 340 groups participating in the program.
