The Illinois Adopt-A-Highway (AAH) program brings citizen volunteers into partnerships with the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) to pick up trash and keep our roadsides clean. The program also educates and encourages people to stop littering. Through the cleanup efforts of more than 10,000 Adopt-A-Highway volunteers throughout Illinois, visitors and tourists have a better first impression of our state.
Cabot Microelectronics employees are among the 10,000 volunteers who participate in this program. CMC is assigned a two-mile section of highway and has been participating for over five years. As a volunteer organization, CMC agrees to remove litter from our section of highway at least three times each year. The three Aurora facilities alternate volunteer times throughout the course of the year. Each facility has the opportunity to participate in this program at least once a year and has consistently accomplished the successful goal of doing our part to keep Illinois clean and improve environmental awareness.
