Help keep your community clean! Adopt-A-Highway is one of the truly successful government-public partnerships, and we need your help to bring it to the next generation of Californians.
The Caltrans Adopt-A-Highway Program provides an avenue for individuals, organizations or businesses to help maintain sections of roadside within California's State Highway System.
Thanks to the newly created Clean California Program, the Adopt-A-Highway Program has been authorized to provide a volunteer incentive of up to $250 per month for litter cleanup events.
Participation can include one or more of these activities:
- Removing litter
- Planting trees
- Planting wildflowers
- Removing graffiti
- Controlling vegetation
Groups have the option to participate as volunteers or hire a maintenance service provider to work on their behalf. Fill out an online application below and your local Adopt-A-Highway Coordinator will contact you to start the adoption process or call 866-ADOPTAHWY or (866) 236-7864.
