Adopt-A-Road

The Adopt-a-Road litter prevention initiative, sponsored by Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful and Gwinnett County Department of Transportation, enables citizens to show their pride in Gwinnett and safely reduce the amount of unsightly trash and illegal signage alongside county roadways.Unkempt communities are more likely to have increased crime, decreased economic growth and a decline in quality of life. The litter prevention efforts of the Adopt-a-Road program directly benefit the community through litter prevention, greater civic involvement, and area beautification.

Blue lines are roads eligible for adoption

Green lines are roads that have already been adopted

5 Easy Adopt-a-Road Steps

  1. Decide which road to adopt.
    Since you will be checking it periodically, we suggest you pick a location convenient to your home, school or business. Or, we can make suggestions of suitable roads. Determine how many people will be needed to adopt the road, whether it is a safe and accessible area to pick up litter, if there is sufficient parking, etc. Must be at least 1-mile in length. You will maintain this road section for at least 12 months and have at least 4 cleanups (minimum of one cleanup per quarter) during that time.
  2. Learn More About the Program.

  3. Contact Us and Take Action.
    Contact us to confirm your road section and participation in the Adopt-a-Road Program.  Free garbage bags, “Volunteers/Men Working” signs, gloves and safety vests will be provided for your cleanup days.
  4. Share your Results and Fill-out a Post-Cleanup Report below.
    You and your group will receive recognition for your efforts by submitting Post-Cleanup Reports (found below) for your cleanup efforts. If you have trash/ debris that is either too large, heavy, or hazardous for your group to remove, let us know in the Post-Cleanup Report. Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful and the Gwinnett Department of Transportation will arrange for the removal of the filled garbage bags.
  5. Receive Recognition for your group’s hard work! Each adopted section of road will be marked with two signs with your group’s name. We will order your signs and have them installed at the proper locations. Certificates are also given out annually to recognize outstanding Adopt-a-Road Partners. However, the greater reward will be your group’s satisfaction in knowing they helped make Gwinnett safer and cleaner!
