The Adopt-A-Highway Program gives local citizens an opportunity
to help
keep roads and highways clean and attractive
throughout Citrus County.

Who Can Join?
  • Any interested group of people can volunteer to keep a section of roadway at least two miles long clear of litter with regular cleanups.
  • If a new group is forming, the members should meet, choose a coordinator and select the roadways they are interested in adopting.
  • Group coordinators are chosen by the group to be the contact person between the county and the organization.
What Is Involved?
  • The volunteer organizations promise to clean the road at least four times a year for two years.
  • The Solid Waste Management Division provides safety training notes, bright orange vests and gloves for volunteers to wear.
  • It also provides safety signs to be used during the cleanup activities.
  • The county puts up a sign designating the roadway as adopted and naming the group that has promised to keep the roadside clean.
  • The county provides Worker's Compensation insurance.
  • All cleanups must be reported.
