Adopt a Road

The Miami-Dade County Adopt-a-Road Program is a public/private partnership program, which encourages volunteer involvement and community service in the control and reduction of litter to maintain the beautification and world class image of Miami-Dade County.

Volunteer organization commits to:

  • A two-year period to the litter pick-up of a specific assigned Miami-Dade County roadway for a minimum of a one-mile segment, both sides of road.
  • A minimum of four litter pick-ups per year (eight pick-ups throughout the term of the contract).
  • Completing and submitting the litter pick-up packet to [email protected] after every litter pick-up. Specifically, the number of volunteers, volunteer hours, trash bags collected, and photos of the pick-up must be submitted immediately after the event in order to be counted.
  • Identifying safety supervisors to oversee each litter pick-up and ensuring that supervisors attend safety training (provided by Miami-Dade County).
  • Safety supervisors must provide and review all safety procedures with volunteers before every litter pick-up, as provided in the litter pick-up packet.

Miami-Dade County commits to:

  • Identify roadways based on availability.
  • Provide safety training and supplies for litter pick-ups.
  • Remove litter bags promptly after each organized pick-up (must be requested at least two weeks in advance of the event).
  • Promote adopt-a-road organizations' efforts after executed litter pick-ups through social media as long as the information required (stated above) is submitted immediately after each event.
