Dane County Adopt-A-Highway Program
Dane County offers an Adopt-A-Highway program as a part of a statewide effort to support the anti-litter movement and promote a clean environment. The Adopt-A-Highway program helps:
- Reduce litter along county highways
- Build support for the county's anti-litter, environmental, and highway beautification programs
- Educate and encourage the drivers to properly dispose of their litter
If my group adopts a highway, what are we responsible for doing?
- Once granted a highway, your volunteer group will take responsibility for litter control on a segment of a county highway. A sign will be posted with your group's name alongside the segment of county highway you've adopted.
- To meet safety regulations, you will be asked to pick up litter on this segment at least three times a year between April 1 and November 1. After each clean up, please submit a clean up report here.
- Groups will not be asked to pick up litter along dangerous areas like county bridges, medians, or steep slopes
- Your group will be responsible for the segment of road you have adopted until you notify the county of your intent to retire
