Adopt-A-Road Program

Adopt-a-Road, Beach, Trail, or Park

Bothered by litter in your favorite place? Looking for a way to volunteer? Join Adopt-a-Road, the Kitsap County litter clean-up project. Groups and individuals are invited to sign up.

How does it work?

You agree to:

  • Adopt a stretch of road, beach, park, or trail for at least 2 years.
  • For roads, adopt a section at least 1 mile long.
  • Pick up litter at least twice a year. We recommend fall and spring.
  • For groups, have a representative sign an agreement on behalf of the entire group.
  • After the event, submit information using an online form.

Kitsap County agrees to:

  • Help volunteers select a road or other area and evaluate it for safety.
  • Lend volunteers safety vests, traffic safety signs, and litter grabbing devices.
  • Provide plastic trash bags and remove any large or dangerous materials.
  • Pay for litter disposal at any County garbage facility.
  • Install a recognition sign at the adopted area after 2 years of participation.

Adopt-a-Road volunteers removed 2,324 pounds of litter from 313 road miles in Kitsap County! Thanks to the 39 individuals and 14 groups who volunteered 602 hours to our community. Pictured: USS John C. Stennis Mustang Association


Kitsap County Solid Waste collaborates with the County Sheriff, County Juvenile Detention, Kitsap Health District, Tribal Nations, and Cities on local litter programs.
