Do you have just two days in 2023 to help your community? Gather your friends or neighbors and adopt a road for litter pickup. Douglas County’s road adoption process is now online and easier than ever.
The Adopt-A-Road program in Douglas County was established more than 25 years ago with the goal of keeping our roads clean and safe. A dedicated group of volunteers already has 59 road segments covered for litter pickup, but there are still 53 that would benefit from your time and attention.
Individuals and organized groups are invited to visit our webpage for more information about the program, search for adoptable roads, register to volunteer and log their progress.
Children who are at least 6 years old may also participate. One adult supervisor is required for every eight participants between 13 and 17 years of age, and one adult supervisor is required for every four participants between 6 and 12 years of age.
When you adopt a road, you agree to pick up litter from both sides of the adopted roadway for one year. Each roadway section ranges from 1 to 3 miles. At the end of one year, you’ll have the option to renew your commitment.
Your name or group’s name will be displayed on a sign along your adopted road. For your chosen cleanup days, the County will provide orange trash bags and safety vests. County crews will also pick up and dispose of the full orange trash bags.
Each year, community volunteers also help beautify our parks and open spaces, give company and assistance to older adults in our community, ensure an enjoyable experience at the Douglas County Fair and so much more. Your County appreciates you!
