About the Program
Various persons, groups and municipalities throughout the County have expressed an interest in beautification through litter removal from certain sites within Palm Beach County rights-of-way. By direction of the Palm Beach County Board of County Commissioners, the focus on such an effort is an Adopt-A-Road program coordinated and directed by the Department of Engineering and Public Works.
The basics of the Palm Beach County Adopt-A-Road program are:
A community group adopts a minimum of a one mile segment of a County road which the group agrees to pick up litter at least four times a year for a two year period.
The County in return provides the group with safety training, safety equipment and trash bags for the litter.
The County erects recognition signs on each end of the group's length of County road. The signs identify the group doing the litter pick-up.
The County collects the litter bags for disposal at the end of each clean-up exercise.
The benefits to both the County and the groups involved are a litter free, attractive County and recognition for the group through the signs and attendant publicity.
