What is Adopt-A-Highway?
Adopt-A-Highway is a local litter prevention program sponsored by Keep Athens-Clarke County Beautiful (KACCB) that works to involve community volunteers in local roadside clean-up efforts. The goal of the program is to reduce roadside litter in an effort to keep our community clean and beautiful. Community organizations and/or volunteers accept the responsibility of regular litter pick-ups on their “adopted” local roadway.
Who Can Adopt?
Any civic-minded organization, such as garden clubs, church groups, scout groups, student clubs, businesses, corporations, families, neighborhood associations, etc. can adopt a stretch of county roadway.
Adopting Organization Responsibilities:
All adopting organizations are required to:
This is how the name that will appear on the ACCGov proclamation and the group's custom-printed Adopt-A-Highway signs.
Name of Intersecting road at the start of stretch.
Name of intersecting road at the end of stretch.
Please visit this map to display roads that KACCB recommends and are available for adoption as well as all the roads that currently adopted.
Groups can select their own road(s) and/or share any of their preferences. KACCB will do its best to accommodate. If groups need assistance identifying and choosing a road to adopt, please contact KACCB staff: 706-613-3501 ext. 7871.
If a group is interested in adopting a state roadway, please call the Department of Transportation District 1 office at (706) 583-2655.
Please identify the four (4) months the group anticipates it will conduct its required litter clean-ups. The dates identified are NOT binding and groups are permitted to change them. The dates are used as activity reminders.
NOTE: At minimum, all Adopt-A-Highway groups must conduct four (4) litter clean-ups per calendar year (January 1 - December 31) to remain in good standing.
Groups that do not fulfill this requirement are subject to being removed from the Adopt-A-Highway program.
