A contract is signed by the participating organization pledging to keep the adopted stretch of highway litter-free for a period of two years. The clean ups must be conducted a least four times a year. Proceeds earned by trash that is recycled may be kept by the adopting organization.
The town will go over the safety requirements with the organization, provide traffic safety cones, trash bags and gloves, and will pick up the collected litter. A contract is signed between the town and the organization awarding the group its adopted site and detailing the two year commitment. The town provides a sign crediting the organization for its dedicated efforts.
Children under the age of 12 cannot participate in a highway clean up. Volunteers under the age of 16 must have adult supervision present at the site.
