Please note: As of March 16, 2020, all litter pick-ups have been temporarily suspended. We will update this webpage once pick-ups can resume.
Interested volunteers can continue to sign up for the program by calling (253) 798-6000. Thank you for your interest in volunteering.
Approximately 110 volunteer organizations participate in the Adopt-a-Road Program and monitor roughly 600 miles of roadways throughout Pierce County. Volunteers take on a 2-mile stretch of county road. We loan out hardhats, vests, and signage. We also provide the litter bags and the bag pickup.
The Adopt-a-Road Program promotes civic pride and environmental responsibility, preserves habitats and improves motorist safety.
It also saves money. Road crews spend about $250,000 and many hours each year cleaning roadside litter and illegal dump sites (about 400,000 pounds of trash). Without Adopt-a-Road volunteers, these numbers would be significantly higher.
If you, your family, your neighborhood, your civic organization, or your workplace is interested in helping make a difference in your area, please contact us. Your neighborhood will look better and be a safer, healthier environment for all residents.
Call (253) 798-6000 to join the Pierce County Adopt-a-Road Program and make a difference.
