Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between Adopt-A-Highway and Sponsor-A-Highway?
Through the Sponsor-A-Highway Program businesses sponsor a section of highway and pay us a monthly fee in order for our work crews to pick up litter on their behalf, once or twice per month depending on DOT’s requirements.
Adopt-A-Highway typically refers to volunteer efforts where groups adopt a section of highway and volunteer to go out and pick up litter two to four times per year. Both groups are recognized with a sign for their contribution.
Are the signs the same?
No. The Sponsored signs are larger and include a larger sponsor recognition panel with your company’s full color logo. Typically volunteer signs only include plain black lettering with no logos on the sponsor recognition panel. Additionally, some programs prohibit volunteer efforts on very busy roadways.
What am I allowed to put on the sign?
Your company name and four color logo demonstrating your contribution to a cleaner environment and safer highways.
The signs are intended for recognition.
What does it cost to Sponsor-A-Highway?
Price varies depending on the frequency of cleaning and size of the sponsored section. Sign locations are typically one mile or two miles in one direction. Our services allow expansion to the interstates where it would be considered unsafe for volunteers to adopt and maintain sections of highway.
Is there a minimum commitment?
Yes, the minimum commitment is a one year contract. Due to the time involved with sign installation and permitting we do not offer a month to month option.
How long is the section/segment of highway that one can sponsor? And is it on both sides of the highway?
The section or segment of highway you sponsor (your sign location) typically covers one or two miles in one direction (one side of the highway).
What do I have to do to Sponsor-A-Highway?
Simply choose from a list of available locations, send us your signed agreement and pay. We do all of the rest, which includes manufacture and installation of your sign, cleaning your sponsored section of highway and submitting all proof of service documentation.
