Chairman, Tom Moslener.
The original Adopt-a-Highway program began right here in Texas in 1985. Since then, it’s grown into a nationally and internationally recognized litter-prevention effort, saving taxpayers’ dollars and keeping our rights of way clean.
Adopt-a-Highway currently has more than 3,800 participating groups across the state, and we salute those thousands of individuals who dedicate their time to actively make a difference and keep Texas beautiful.
Check out the Adopt-a-Highway radio spot and be inspired to go the extra two miles for Texas.
It’s our volunteers who keep this Texas-born program going strong, and your help is needed now more than ever. Participation is simple:
- You adopt a two-mile stretch of highway for a minimum of two years. Note: Interstate highways are not eligible for adoption.
- You agree to pickup litter four times per year (more in some areas due to heavy traffic).
- Adopt-a-Highway signs will be posted with your group’s name at your adopted section.
- Adopt-a-Highway will provide your volunteers with safety vests, litterbags and safety training.
- You bask in the glory of claiming a piece of Texas pride.
