It is the objective of Scott County to improve the aesthetics of the county and create public awareness of environmental needs along county roadways through the adoption of a county-wide Adopt-A-Roadway Program.
There is a need to enhance the quality of our roadsides. This enhancement can be achieved by the bi-annual collection of trash and litter form the roadsides. The Scott County Adopt-a-Roadway Program allows individuals and/or groups the opportunity to adopt a certain secondary roadside. Once the adoption has occurred, that individual or group assumes the responsibility for the bi-annual collection of trash and litter for that roadside.
Groups or individuals interested in participating in the Adopt-A-Roadway program must plan on providing roadway clean up activities twice a year, once in the spring and once in the fall. Attendance for April training session is encouraged. Spring clean up activities must take place in April, May or June. Fall clean up activities must take place in August, September or October. Applications must be received no later than March 15th if the applicant would like to begin in the spring. Applications must be received no later than August 15th if the applicant would like to begin in the fall.
If, at any time following the adoption, the County, in its sole discretion, feels that the sponsor is not meeting the terms and conditions of the agreement, the County may terminate the agreement and remove sponsorship signs.
