Welcome one and all! Whether you are an existing Adopt a Highway volunteer group or want to pitch-in for one day. This year National Cleanup Day is Saturday, Sept. 17, less than two months away. The day is set aside for civic-minded individuals and organizations to unite for the purpose of reducing litter in their communities along state highways.

Mark your calendar and watch for registration information in the coming weeks. Adopt a Highway volunteer groups and other civic-minded individuals requesting a one-day permit will have the opportunity to register for the cleanup in late August.

All groups participating are required to report litter totals within three days of the event. Last year 331 Adopt a Highway volunteers collected more than 1.3 tons of litter in one day! An amazing result from the efforts of caring Arizonans like our volunteer shown in the photo from St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Prescott.

The Adopt a Highway team plans to visit as many volunteer groups around the state as logistics allow. If your clean up is along our route, we will contact you in advance of National Cleanup Day to coordinate details. 

Thank you for considering National Cleanup Day as an opportunity to volunteer and help reduce litter along state highways. For more information contact [email protected].

Arizona, Keep It Grand!
