St. Louis County last week unveiled its upgraded “Adopt a Roadside” program at the intersection of Patterson Road and Marbury Drive in Oakville.

County Executive Charlie A. Dooley was keynote speaker at Friday’s event. He was joined by south county resident Susan Berg, who recently adopted a segment of Patterson Road in memory of her son Jordan John Feager.

“A clean community is everyone’s responsibility,” Dooley stated in a news release. “And thanks to residents like Ms. Berg, and, hopefully, many more like her throughout St. Louis County, we can continue to make significant progress against the scourge of roadside litter.”

The county has created a modern, new “look” for its Adopt a Roadside signs — two of which will be installed for every adopting group — and fully computerized adoption process to make it easier to sign up for delittering responsibilities for a particular road, according to the release. Among the computerized improvements is a map of the county that depicts all adoptable roads.

“You can call up the map and see in a matter of seconds what particular road is available in your area of interest,” Dooley continued. “From there, it’s a matter of applying online — a quick and simple process.”

Although county forces regularly remove litter and other debris from public streets, Dooley stressed that the fight against roadside trash requires a regionwide effort from the public/private sector.
