What is Adopt-a-Highway?
"This is a program to provide citizens who are concerned with Oregon’s environment an opportunity to control litter and improve the appearance of the state highway system. Individuals, corporations, associations, firms, partnerships and joint stock companies enter into an agreement with the Oregon Department of Transportation to pick up and remove trash and litter from the right of way. This also may include landscaping maintenance.

This is a rewarding way to volunteer in your community at no cost to you. The requirements are easy to meet. Just a couple of meetings a year and your group efforts to pick up your adopted stretch of highway on an as needed basis. ODOT recognizes your efforts by proving a sign with your group (or family) name.

Litter is unsightly and destroys Oregon's natural beauty. Working together we can keep Oregon's highways beautiful, welcoming visitors and showing our Oregonian pride!"
-- Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT).
