Montgomery County's Adopt A Road (AAR) program encourages residents and businesses in the County to participate in a community activity by keeping our roadsides litter free.  Currently there are more than 2,500 volunteers who have adopted over 450 road segments and cleaning over 1100 miles of road in an effort to Keep Montgomery County Beautiful. You can be a part of this program too! 

Your participation will help reduce trash and litter along County roads and maintain a clean and attractive environment.  Ultimately it helps protect the Chesapeake Bay.  Litter that is washed into storm drains, travels to nearby creeks, streams, major rivers, and eventually can reach the Bay.

With the amount of trash littered on the roadside every day, and budget constraints within the County resutling in less mowing and road cleaning, your involvement has becoming increasingly important. AAR allows residents to demonstrate community pride, make a positive statement for a clean and attractive community, and have a better understanding of stormwater pollution. Help make Montgomery County a “Greener” place to live!
