What is the ADOPT-A-ROAD Program?

This is a Somerset County Run Program.

With the amount of trash littered on the roadside every day, your involvement is becoming increasingly important. Any local community organization, school group or business group, as well as individuals 18 years of age or older, may adopt a road.

Guidelines for adoption include an agreement to clean at least one mile or the entire length of a road’s right-of-way four times per year. Participants are supplied garbage bags, safety vests and a road sign identifying the adopting group. You may select a road of your choice or choose a specific “needy road” from the list below. If you wish to adopt a road or portion of road within city limits, please contact your city. Rules and regulations are provided to each group.
