Adopt-A-Highway Program

Adopt-a-highway

The Adopt A Highway Program gives local citizens an opportunity to help keep roads and highways clean and attractive throughout the county.

Who can join?

  • Any interested group of people can volunteer to keep a section of roadway at least two miles long clear of litter with regular cleanups.
  • If a new group is forming, the members should meet, choose a coordinator and select the roadways they are interested in adopting.
  • Group coordinators are chosen by the group to be the contact person between the county and the organization.

What is involved?

  • The volunteer organizations promise to clean the road at least four times a year for two years.
  • The Solid Waste Management Division provides safety training notes, bright orange vests and gloves for volunteers to wear.
  • It also provides safety signs to be used during the cleanup activities.
  • The county puts up a sign designating the roadway as adopted and naming the group that has promised to keep the roadside clean.
  • The county provides Worker's Compensation insurance.
