Last Saturday members of the Eden Prairie Reserve Unit, along with family members and police officers, cleaned up a section of Hwy. 5 between Eden Prairie Road and Mitchell Road. They have done this every year since 1990, the year they adopted this stretch of highway. This year they collected 25 bags of trash along with several miscellaneous large pieces of trash.
According to MnDOT, Adopt a Highway volunteer groups spent an estimated 239,000 hours picking up 112,000 pounds of trash in 2017. Those efforts helped MnDOT realize an estimated $6-million benefit in 2017.
We would like to thank the Reserves for everything they do to keep our community safe and clean!
