Adopt-A-Road Program

The Adopt-A-Road Program provides the citizens of Clackamas County with an opportunity to control litter, beautify and clean roadsides and improve the appearance of the County's road system.

The Adopt-A-Road Program is designed to encourage and facilitate involvement of volunteer groups in litter clean-up work, with each group working on a specific section of road.

As of late 2007, there are 285 active volunteer individuals and/or volunteer groups that have adopted 400 miles of roadway. Approximately 60 tons of trash is collected each year.

The County maintains nearly 1,400 miles of roadway, so there are still many opportunities for additional adoptions. The County supports the free program with coordination, removal of bagged garbage and providing volunteers with grapplers, safety vests, plastic bags, roadside warning signs and sign stands.
