 Pete Gatje has been a VDOT Adopt-A-Highway volunteer on two sections of our local highways for 18 years. "Recently I turned 82 and decided it is time for me to retire from litter removal on our highways," he says. He's looking for someone to organize a group to take over the roads he has kept attractive. "As long as you stay off the highway pavement, the work is not dangerous. Most of the litter pick-up is done in the spring and fall," he notes. Read more about his two projects HERE (PDF), or call Pete Gatje at 434-361-1309, or email him at Read about the VDOT Adopt-a-Highway Program HERE.
