Adopt a Road
The Miami-Dade County Adopt-a-Road Program is a public/private partnership program, which encourages volunteer involvement and community service in the control and reduction of litter to maintain the beautification and world class image of Miami-Dade County.
Volunteer organization commits to:
- A two-year period to the litter pick-up of a specific assigned Miami-Dade County roadway for a minimum of a one-mile segment, both sides of road.
- A minimum of four litter pick-ups per year (eight pick-ups throughout the term of the contract).
- Completing and submitting the litter pick-up packet to firstname.lastname@example.org after every litter pick-up. Specifically, the number of volunteers, volunteer hours, trash bags collected, and photos of the pick-up must be submitted immediately after the event in order to be counted.
- Identifying safety supervisors to oversee each litter pick-up and ensuring that supervisors attend safety training (provided by Miami-Dade County).
- Safety supervisors must provide and review all safety procedures with volunteers before every litter pick-up, as provided in the litter pick-up packet.
Miami-Dade County commits to:
- Identify roadways based on availability.
- Provide safety training and supplies for litter pick-ups.
- Remove litter bags promptly after each organized pick-up (must be requested at least two weeks in advance of the event).
- Promote adopt-a-road organizations' efforts after executed litter pick-ups through social media as long as the information required (stated above) is submitted immediately after each event.
