Welcome to the ADOPT A ROAD PROGRAM!

The Montgomery County's Adopt A Road (AAR) program encourages residents (individuals, families and businesses) to participate in a community activity by keeping roadsides litter free.  Currently there are more than 5,000 volunteers who adopt over 430 road segments 

in an effort to Keep Montgomery County beautiful.

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

With the amount of trash littered on the roadside each day and budget constraints within the County (resulting in less mowing and road cleaning) your involvement has become increasingly important. AAR allows residents to demonstrate community pride, make a positive statement for a clean and attractive community. Help make Montgomery County a “Greener” place to live!
