  • Adopt-A-Road Litter Control Program

    Participate in an activity that promotes civic responsibility, community pride and camaraderie within an organization by adopting a Jefferson County roadway. 

    Thousands of citizens and organizations across Colorado take part in the Adopt-A-Road Litter Control volunteer effort, which helps keep roadways clean, saves taxpayer money and increases public awareness about litter control. 

    There are many roadways available for adoption within Jefferson County. Contact your appropriate district to find out which roads are available for adoption.   

    Contritbutors that have adopted roadways include churches, scout troops, employee associations, retired employee associations, nonprofits, service clubs, families and individuals.

    How the program works

    A two-year commitment is required, and participating groups and individuals must conduct at least two trash pickups each year. Most adoptable roadway sections are approximately 2 miles long. Jefferson County provides participants with orange safety vests, trash bags and bagged trash pickup.

    The county will place a sign, featuring the participating group’s name, at each end of the adopted roadway segment. A hinged warning sign will be included below the group sign. This must be opened during trash collection, alerting motorists that a litter pickup is in progress. When finished, the hinged warning sign must be closed. The following day, Jefferson County Road and Bridge Division personnel will pick up the collected trash.

    Before beginning a pick up, each group or individual should:

    • Open the warning sign on the group’s Adopt-A-Road sign post
    • Put on orange safety vests
    • Have immediate access to an adequate first-aid kit
    • Select a hospital or emergency room and know the quickest route to the facility
    • Have immediate transportation available
    • Carpool whenever possible
    • Call 303-271-5200 to arrange trash pick up
