‘Adopt a Highway’ cleans up in Puna


The Hawaii Police Department, in cooperation with the Department of Transportation’s State Highways Division and local community organizations, conducted a coordinated “Adopt a Highway” cleanup project Saturday, Aug. 25 along Highway 130 in the Puna District.

More than 100 volunteers from seven community groups participated, along with Puna Community Policing Officers William Brown, Scott Amaral and Sandor Finkey.

The cleanup was conducted from 7 a.m. until just after 11 a.m. and spanned the stretch of Highway 130 from the Humane Society all the way to Pahoa Village.

“The cleanup was a great success and we plan to do more,” Acting Captain Reed Mahuna said. “A special thank you goes out to all the community groups that assisted with the cleanup. It is this type of collaboration that we really appreciate.”

Police encourage any group or member of the public who wishes to participate in future projects to call Finkey at 965-2716.
