Pacific Missile Range Facility adopts a highway

MANA — Working under the Adopt-A-Highway Program, about 60 volunteers from the Pacific Missile Range Facility at Mana collected approximately 50 bags of trash on Friday morning along a 2-mile stretch adjacent to the PMRF Navy base.

“We take great pride in being stewards of the environment, both within and beyond our installation,” said Capt. Brett Stevenson, the PMRF Commanding Officer. “The overwhelming support from our sailors and civilian personnel truly underscores the value we place on this responsibility.”

Garbed in the bright orange Adopt-A-Highway shirts, and base unit attire, the volunteers scoured the roadsides of Kaumuali‘i Highway for a 2-mile stretch from the base for the trash accumulation.

Given the proximity of the Kekaha Landfill where trash can inadvertently accumulate along the highway, regular cleanups are essential, PMRF said. The base has already scheduled the next cleanup for June.

“It is truly a testament to our team’s dedication to service, and our beautiful community,” said Command Master Chief Emanuel Bolton. “This event marked the commencement of the 2024 season of PMRF’s Adopt-A-Highway Program, initiating quarterly cleanups as part of the ongoing commitment of environmental stewardship and community engagement.”

“Our goal is to ensure that our roads reflect the environmental excellence that we, and our community, hold in high regard,” Bolton said. “Let us uphold our commitment to the highest standards in this area of the island.”
