Adopt-A-Road Program
Program Overview
Approximately 110 volunteer organizations currently participate in the Adopt-a-Road Program and monitor roughly 600 miles of roadways throughout Pierce County. Volunteers take on a 2-mile stretch of county road. We loan out hardhats, vests, and signage. We also provide the litter bags and the bag pickup.

The Adopt-a-Road Program promotes civic pride, environmental responsibility, preserves habitats, and improves motorist safety.

And it saves money! Road Operations crews spend about $250,000 and many hours cleaning roadside litter and illegal dump sites each year (about 400,000 pounds of trash). Without Adopt-a-Road volunteers these numbers would be significantly higher.

Get Involved
If you, your family, your neighborhood, your church group, your civic organization, or your workplace is interested in helping make a difference in your area, please contact us. Your neighborhood will look better and be a safer, healthier environment for all residents.

Call (253) 798-6000 to join the Pierce County Adopt-a-Road Program and make a difference.
