"I stumbled upon your web site while trying to find a way to clean up Santee. Everyday while waiting to merg onto the 52 I see all kinds of trash!!!
I would like to find out how to go about “cleaning” this up? I don’t suppose you can just go onto the freeway and start cleaning up trash without some sort of permission or permit of sorts?

Santee Patch will spread the word when these cleanup efforts become available to the public.
If you don't want to wait for that, or have another stretch of highway in mind for cleaning, you can contact the general line for the CalTrans Adopt-A-Highway program at (619) 688-3367 or directly contact the local Adopt-A-Highway coordinator, Jose Estrada, at (619) 688-3327 or firstname.lastname@example.org, to get involved with cleanup groups that already exist, or create your own.
