Adopt a Highway: Share your volunteerism on social media

Adopt a Highway LitterbugOur Adopt a Highway volunteers do very important work throughout the year, helping keep Arizona beautiful. While we work to visit and recognize our Adopt a Highway volunteer groups, we also want our volunteers to be able to share the work they do with their friends and family on social media. 
How can you do that? If you're an Adopt a Highway volunteer, be sure to add our 2021 Facebook frame to your profile photo. We're rolling out this new Facebook frame in time for National CleanUp Day on Sept. 18. 
To add a frame to your profile picture on a desktop computer:
  1. Go to
  2. Search “Adopt a Highway.” 
  3. Click “Use as Profile Picture” to save it.

To add a frame to your profile picture on a mobile device:

  1. Go to your Facebook app and tap on your profile picture.
  2. A menu will pop up, tap “Add Frame.”
  3. Search “Adopt a Highway.” 

If you're on Instagram, use our new Instagram stickers on your stories. The new stickers focus on Adopt a Highway and one even features a litterbug. They can be found on the ADOT Giphy page or by searching ArizonaDOT in the sticker section of Instagram. 

Last year, more than 300 Adopt a Highway volunteers came out around the state to clean up adopted highway segments resulting in 4.3 tons of litter removed along Arizona's highways. That's three tons more litter than was collected the previous year. 
We're looking forward to seeing photos of all of the volunteers who work hard to "Keep Arizona Grand." Remember to use hashtag #NationalCleanUpDay and tag ADOT in your photos.
