Adopt A HighwayAdopt-A-Highway is a volunteer program to pick up litter and debris along Minnesota’s roadways. It is a way for citizens to make a personal contribution to a cleaner and more beautiful environment. Community groups, clubs, businesses, churches, families, and individuals adopt a highway by picking up litter and debris along both sides of a two mile segment of roadway two - three times per year for at least two years.
Participants of Adopt A Highway agree to:
- Adopt a two mile segment of highway for a minimum of two years.
- Pick up litter and debris along this segment twice each year.
- Wear safety vests during pick-up and observe all safety rules.
- Drop off the filled trash bags at Dodge County Highway Dept. (16 S. Airport Dr., Dodge Center) for disposal.
- Notify Dodge County Highway Dept. (507-374-6694) of any large, heavy, or hazardous items along the roadway.
- Erect a highway sign at each end of the adopted segment to recognize your group’s cleanup efforts.
- Provide high visibility vests, trash bags and safety information.
- Dispose of filled bags dropped off at the Highway Dept.
- Remove large, heavy, or hazardous items from the roadway
