Adopt-A-Road

The Harstine Island Community Club has adopted over 6 miles of Harstine Island roadways to reduce roadside litter, contribute to a cleaner environment, and a more attractive Mason County.

HICC committed to:
  • Pick up trash on North Island Dr from milepost 1 to 4.7 (Harstine Point). The Pioneer Kiwanis have an agreement covering milepost 1 to the bridge.
  • Pick up trash on South Island Dr from milepost 1 to 3.3 (intersection with East Island Drive). The Pioneer Kiwanis have an agreement covering milepost 1 to the bridge.
  • Clean the roads adapted at least four times a year.
  • Provide safety training to volunteers.
  • Ensure volunteers wear safety gear (vests and hard hats).
  • Document/record clean-ups conducted.
  • Maintain a contact person/group leader.
Mason County has committed to:
  • Provide trash bags; hard hats; safety vests; signage; and flashing lights.
  • Pickup and dispose of trash collected.
  • Provide a sign recognizing HICC’s “adoption.”
  • The agreement sets a minimum age for volunteers at 15. It also limits the number of volunteers (to 10) and number of cars that can be parked in the clean-up zone during the cleanup (to encourage carpooling). It also prohibits cleanups on holiday weekends.
