Roadside litter costs millions of dollars annually to control. Often, it is impossible to keep up with the trash that thoughtless people have dumped on us. We need your help! Join the thousands of volunteers who help keep Colorado beautiful by picking up litter along our highways
Generally, the adopting group agrees to pick up litter from both sides of a highway for a two mile section at a minimum of four times per year. However, each segment has its own special needs. A few segments may be longer or shorter than 2 miles or they may be in an area that doesn’t need to be picked up more than twice in a year. Some groups have adopted several sections of highway.
Adopting groups are encouraged to sort litter when picking up, taking recyclable materials to recycling centers. The group may keep any money collected from their recycling efforts.
