What is this service?
The Adopt-A-Road program allows the public to directly contribute to roadside maintenance through litter collection and removal. In addition to the aesthetic benefits of cleaner and more beautiful roadsides, participants help to prevent potential pollutants from entering our waterways. Participating in the Adopt-A-Road program is a great way to promote civic responsibility and community pride.
Who can use this service?
Individuals, organizations, businesses, and service groups may adopt sections of County-maintained roadside. Subject to County approval, minors age 16 and older may participate with parent or guardian permission, provided that they are adequately supervised.
Eligibility shall not be denied on the basis of race, sex, color, religion, national or ethnic origin, age, political affiliation, ancestry, marital status, sexual orientation, disability, or medical condition (unless the disability or medical condition would affect the participant’s or public’s safety).
Is there a charge for this service?
There is no fee charged for non-profit organization or individual participation. Businesses are charged a one-time fee for recognition sign fabrication and installation (refer to current Public Works Fee Schedule). A participant may elect to provide customized decals for the recognition signs at their own cost (requires County approval).
Participants are supplied orange litter bags and disposable gloves at no cost. The County provides pick up and disposal of filled litter bags and other debris collected from the adoption site free of charge.
When and where is this service offered?
This service is available throughout the year during regular business hours except during scheduled holidays.
