The New Jersey Department of Transportation
(NJDOT) offers a volunteer beautification
program to public-spirited citizens
through its Adopt-A-Highway Program.
NJDOT is recommitting its efforts
to reverse, rehabilitate and restore
the beauty, natural resources and the
sense of pride that has long defined "The
Garden State". NJDOT is proud
to partner with the New Jersey Clean
Communities Council in the re-institution
of the Adopt-A-Highway Litter Removal
Program. Through this renewed effort
which includes other state agencies,
local government, our business communities
and the great citizens of New Jersey,
we can make measurable strides in improving
the environmental quality of life in
Litter Removal Program offers
volunteers an opportunity to
clean up litter on New Jersey
state highways. This public-spirited
program extends the effectiveness
of NJDOT's ongoing effort to
make state highways cleaner and
more attractive and at the same time control the growing cost of litter removal.
Through volunteer cleanup on state
highways, Adopt-A-Highway Litter Removal
Program participants can raise public
awareness of each person's responsibility
for roadside litter.
NJDOT will install an Adopt-A-Highway
the section of state highway that your
group chooses to clean up.
A name placard will be placed below
the sign identifying the individual
or groups maintaining the particular
section of highway.
For more information on adopting sections of highway near your home or workplace, contact the New Jersey Clean Communities Council.
