There is still time. Adoptable highway segments are available for the Adopt a Highway Volunteer Program statewide cleanup on National CleanUp Day Saturday, Sept. 18. 

One-day permits are granted across the state of Arizona on a first-come, first-served basis. We will do our best to find an adoptable highway segment near your desired location. Adopt a Highway Volunteer groups—this counts toward your annual cleanup requirement.

Last year more than 300 Adopt a Highway volunteers came out around the state to clean up adopted highway segments resulting in 4.3 tons of litter removed along Arizona's highways. Three tons more than was collected the previous year. 

ADOT tracks the number of litter bags collected, pounds of trash, and number of volunteers reported by volunteer group leaders each year to measure the success of the program. On National CleanUp Day all program volunteer groups and one-day permit groups must report litter bag totals to us within three days after the event. 

Once again, the Adopt a Highway team plans to visit as many volunteer groups around the state as logistics allow.  We will contact you prior to National Cleanup Day if your clean up segment is along our route!

At this time we are asking volunteer group leaders and all volunteers to respect guidelines for social distancing during cleanups. Keep groups as small as possible as recommended by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

We'd love to see and share your National Cleanup Day photos on social media. Watch for our new 2021 facebook frame and Instagram stickers rolling out next month and remember to use the hashtag #NationalCleanUpDay and tag your photos with @ArizonaDOT. 

Thank you for considering ADOT for your National Cleanup Day participation as an opportunity to unite and reduce litter along our highways. For more information about the program visit Adopt a Highway.

Arizona, Keep It Grand!
