Volunteers enter into a two-year agreement with DOT, during which they agree to conduct litter removal at regularly scheduled intervals. Many miles of highway are adopted statewide by various organizations, allowing civic-minded people to make a difference in their communities. This eases the load of DOT work crews, enabling them to devote more time to other road maintenance and special highway projects.
Volunteers Agree to:
- "Adopt" a two-mile section of a State Highway
- Dedicate two years to the program
- Follow specified DOT safety regulations
- Remove litter a minimum of four times each year
FDOT Agree to:
- Assist with safety meetings
- Provide safety vests and litter bags
- Pick up litter at specified locations
- Post Adopt-a-Highway signs commending the group at the beginning and end of their section
