The Clatsop County Adopt-A-Road Program is a litter-reduction campaign designed to remove litter and debris from county roads and improve the quality of the environment.
The program establishes a partnership between volunteer groups and the Clatsop County Public Works Department by working together in the efforts of litter control along neighborhood roads.
Volunteer groups can “adopt” up to a two-mile stretch of road by removing litter at least two times a year over a two-year period.
As a volunteer, you will receive:
- A safety orientation from the Public Works safety coordinator
- The use of safety equipment including hard hats, safety vests, disposable gloves, trash bags, litter pickers and road warning signs
- Two Adopt-A-Road signs located at either end of the adopted road section recognizing the adopting organization
- The opportunity to contribute to community beautification
- Recognition for a job well done
Who can apply?
- Individuals, service organizations, businesses or families
- They decide which section of road they want to adopt
- The adopting group decides when to do cleanup
What roads are adoptable?
- Any designated County road that is approved by the coordinator and has not already been adopted by another group
What commitment do I have to make?
- Clean up to 2 miles of road
- 2 times a year (minimum)
- For 2 years
