Waste Watchers has adopted Airport Road through the Adopt-A-Highway program.
Waste Watchers is an independent, non-profit (donations are tax-deductible) volunteer community group that promotes the responsible disposal of waste on the Eastern Shore.
Waste Watchers is active all over the Shore. Wherever someone picks up a piece of litter, Waste Watchers is there. Any time a family or an office decides they can start recycling or a teacher decides to teach about where garbage goes, Waste Watchers is there. Whenever an individual, a group of friends, a church, a club or a business decides to actively do something about our roadside litter by adopting a highway and cleaning it four times a year, Waste Watchers is there to help.
Garbage that isn't disposed of responsibly hurts everyone. It's dangerous, costly, and ugly. It's also killing off the very animals and ecosystems we love so much.
Waste Watchers has a team of volunteers (Trash Talkers) who will come to your school, business, office, or home to educate you about reducing consumption, reusing what you can, and recycling. We facilitate litter pick-up events. We also sponsor an essay contest in the schools, See "Photos" tab above for 2012 winners. To sign up to volunteer in our projects, use this email
Waste Watchers meetings are every second Wednesday of the month except for August and December. We meet at the Eastern Shore Chamber of Commerce in Melfa from 11am to 1pm. Usually we just bring our lunches and get to work. Everyone is welcome.
