Adopt a Highway

Getting Started

Adopt a Highway volunteers - Curtis Family

Become one of the thousands of dedicated volunteers keeping our highways clean and safe.

Here's how:
  1. Review the map to locate the district where you would like to adopt a segment of highway.
  2. Contact the District Adopt a Highway Permit Technician for assistance to select an available section of highway for adoption.
  3. Read the Adopt a Highway Volunteer Application and General Obligations and Responsibilities. If you agree, complete the form and submit to your permit technician.
  4. Gather your friends and family for a litter clean-up event!
  5. Conduct a safety briefing with your group before each event.
  6. Return the Adopt a Highway Volunteer Registration Form to the permit technician, after the pickup, signed by each member of your group.
  7. Report your litter in the Activity Report after each clean-up. We want to know how you did, and your team does too! Be sure to tell them how many bags they picked up and what a positive difference their efforts made today.
