(NEWS 6) – In much of Brevard County, the “adopt-a-highway” signs along the roadside don’t name a business or charity that supports the road cleanup.

In Brevard County, they read: “This highway is adopted by the Sheriff’s chain gang, ” meaning inmates clean up the side of the road.

Wednesday afternoon, they were piling old furniture and tree limbs that had been dumped along U.S. 1 Melbourne under a “no dumping” sign.

They regularly do construction projects — such as the horse barn they built last week — paint walls, scrub floors and collect poop from the cages at the Brevard County Animal Shelter.
