Adopt a Highway volunteer groups and one-day enthusiasts are invited
The Adopt a Highway Volunteer Program welcomes you to make a positive difference on National CleanUp Day, Saturday, Sept. 18.
In 2020, over 330 Adopt a Highway volunteers collected 4.3 tons of trash in one day. That’s triple from the previous year. In addition, we hope to meet or beat that record with your help.
Permitted volunteer groups or those interested in conducting a one-time cleanup may register to participate now. ADOT grants one-day permits on a first-come, first-served basis subsequently we’ll do our best to find an adoptable section near your desired location.
For existing Adopt a Highway Volunteer groups, or one-day permit holders that decide to keep their permit for two years—this event counts toward your annual cleanup requirement!
All groups must report litter bag totals as well as number of volunteers to ADOT within three days after the event. ADOT tracks litter data each year to help improve the program and share the accomplishments of 4,700 volunteers. Finally, groups reporting this important information receive a printable certificate of appreciation for participating.
The Adopt a Highway team plans to visit as many volunteer groups on-site as logistics allow. If your segment is along our route on Sept. 18 we will contact you prior to National CleanUp Day.
We’d love to see and share your National CleanUp Day photos on social media. Please use the hashtag #NationalCleanUpDay as well as tag your photos with @ArizonaDOT.
Adopt a Highway for National CleanUp Day
Thank you for considering ADOT as an opportunity to unite as well as reduce litter. In conclusion, visit Adopt a Highway for more information.
At this time we are asking volunteer group leaders and all volunteers to respect guidelines for social distancing during cleanups. Keep groups as small as possible as recommended by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Arizona, Keep It Grand!
