Adopt-A-Road Program

Adopt-A-Road, Beach, Trail, or Park

Bothered by litter on the roadside? Looking for a way to volunteer? Join Adopt-A-Road, the Kitsap County litter clean-up project for county and city roads, beaches, trails, and parks! Groups and individuals are invited to sign up.

State highways can be adopted through the WSDOT Adopt-a-Highway program

 

How does it work?

You agree to:

  • Adopt a stretch of roadside, beach, park, or trail for at least 2 years.

  • For county roads, adopt a section at least 1 mile long.

  • Pick up litter at least twice a year. We recommend fall and spring.

  • For groups, have a representative sign an agreement on behalf of the entire group.

  • After the event, submit information about the cleanup using an online form.

Kitsap County agrees to:

  • Help volunteers select a road or other area and evaluate it for safety.

  • Lend volunteers safety vests, traffic safety signs, and litter grabbing devices.

  • Provide plastic trash bags and remove any large or dangerous materials.

  • Pay for litter disposal at any county garbage facility.

  • Install a recognition sign at the adopted area after 2 years of participation.

In 2017, 105 volunteers spent 474 hours removing 1813 pounds of litter from 88 road miles in Kitsap County! We thank you for your service to our community.
