[ Adopt-A-Road | Guidelines ]Adopt a Road

Program Objective

It is the objective of Scott County to improve the aesthetics of the county and create public awareness of environmental needs along county roadways through the adoption of a county-wide Adopt-A-Roadway Program.

General Statement

There is a need to enhance the quality of our roadsides. This enhancement can be achieved by the bi-annual collection of trash and litter form the roadsides. The Scott County Adopt-a-Roadway Program allows individuals and/or groups the opportunity to adopt a certain secondary roadside. Once the adoption has occurred, that individual or group assumes the responsibility for the bi-annual collection of trash and litter for that roadside.

Time Period

Groups or individuals interested in participating in the Adopt-A-Roadway program must plan on providing roadway clean up activities twice a year, once in the spring and once in the fall. For the spring activity, a training session must be help in April and clean up activities must take place in May. Applications must be received no later than March 15th if the applicant would like to begin in the spring. For the fall activity, a training session must be held in September and the clean up activities must take place in October. Applications must be received no later than August 15th if the applicant would like to begin in the fall.

Program Requirements

If, at any time following the adoption, the County, in its sole discretion, feels that the sponsor is not meeting the terms and conditions of the agreement, the County may terminate the agreement and remove sponsorship signs.
