Your Service Group Can Help
The Adopt-a-Road Program is more than just roadside litter; you can adopt your local beach, stream, public trail, or your street. The program provides the safety equipment and disposal – we just need you to cover some ground! Litter and debris negatively affect the scenic qualities we enjoy on the Kitsap Peninsula and clog stormwater systems. Litter also can carry pollutants into
waterways and its impact on marine life can be devastating.
- Do your part—help to clean up trash you find in parks, along beaches and trails, and in other open space areas.
- Report illegal dumping on public properties.
- Volunteer to help the County’s “Adopt-a-Road” program and Washington
State Department of Transportation’s “Adopt-a-Highway” program. Taking time to do your part to clean up our community can be a rewarding experience. In 2013, Kitsap County residents and service groups cleaned up 3,780 lbs. of litter from Kitsap County’s roads, streams, beaches, and parks through the Adopt-a-Road Program. In total, 196 individual volunteers contributed 888 hours of their time to help make Kitsap a cleaner place.
