Moberly Correctional Center staff keeps Missouri a little cleaner

Moberly Correctional Center staff keeps Missouri a little cleanerThe Corizon Health team at Moberly Correctional Center (MCC) adopted a 1.8 mile stretch of highway in front of their facility about a year ago, and since then staff members have picked up trash four times. On average, they have collected 21 bags of trash each time.

In April, the trash clean-up team participated in the 2014 No MOre Trash! Bash and were recognized with pins for their hard work in keeping Missouri’s roadways cleaner. Almost 127,000 bags of litter were collected during this year’s bash, plus many truckloads of debris. No MOre Trash! is the statewide litter-prevention campaign for the state of Missouri and is a partnership between the Missouri Departments of Conservation and Transportation, as well as thousands of volunteers.

Adopting the highway was a great way for Corizon team members to show their support in the local community—and it is a great continuing team building activity. Great work, Moberly team!
