YOU can help instill a sense of pride in their local community by working together with KPCB to keep county roadways litter free!

The basics of the Adopt-A-Road program are:

  • A group adopts a minimum of a one mile stretch of both sides of a county road and agrees to pick up litter at least EIGHT times a year for a two-year period.
  • The group agrees to submit a Wrap-Up Report after each cleanup.

In return, Keep Polk County Beautiful and the Polk County Board of County Commissioners:

  • Provide equipment, trash bags, and trash pickup.
  • Erect recognition signs within adopted roadways to identify the group doing the litter pickup.
  • Provide disposal of collected roadside litter.

Adopting a road will reinforce the importance of litter control.  This Litter Prevention Program targets litter and illegal dumping throughout unincorporated communities.

The benefits to this program are a litter-free, more attractive community, recognition signs for the group, and a feeling that the individuals involved are making a difference in their community.

The best part is, this program is FREE to you!  Make a difference.  Be the difference.  Volunteer!
