Volunteer coordinators wear many hats. As motivator – Hey, let’s do this! – to safety promoter and event closer, which requires reporting your litter collection totals.
Reporting the number of trash bags you collect each year within your mileposts is valuable data that we count on from you to help us measure the success of the Adopt a Highway Volunteer Program each year.
With that in mind, we have added the Adopt a Highway Volunteer program as a new feature on the ADOT mobile site homepage. It joins the lineup of other ADOT sites frequently visited by customers: MVD Services, News, Traffic Information and Contacts. You can also choose to visit our full site through a link on the mobile site homepage.
Now, the information that you access frequently is available at your fingertips. While this is not an app, you can save the URL to your home page for easy access on a smartphone.
Check out these three quick categories: Contact Information, Report your Litter and Safety Briefing.Contact information –
