Monday-Friday7:00 a.m.- 4:30 p.m.
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.
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.
Please connect to the County Manager's Policy and Procedures, Streets and Roads section, to review the following:
After you review the above forms contact your appropriate district.
Take a look at the links below for the roadways and segments that are available for adoption.
If the segment you wish to adopt is not listed, please call us at 303-271-5200, and we will determine whether the road has been adopted or if it could be added to the list.
If the roadway has been adopted, you will be added to a waiting list. The existing adopter has the first right to renew their adoption. If the adopter declines, the roadway will be offered to the next applicant on the waiting list.
Thank you for your interest in the Jefferson County Adopt-A-Road Litter Control program!
