Queen Anne's County Adopt-A-Road Program

The Queen Anne's County Adopt-A-Road Program is a litter-reduction campaign designed to remove litter and debris from county roads and improve the quality of the environment.

The program established a partnership between volunteer groups and the Department of Public Works, Roads Division by working together to control litter along local and neighborhood roads.

Volunteer groups can "adopt" a segment of roadway by removing littler at least two times a year over a two year period.

Who can apply?

  • Individuals
  • Service Organizations
  • Businesses
  • Families
  • Non-profits
  • Homeowner Associations

What Roads are adoptable?

The Adopt-A-Road Coordinator has an available listing of roadways that need adopting but generally any local county road is eligible. To find out which road segments are available for adoption please call R. Shane Moore, P.E. the Adopt-A-Road Coordinator at 410-758-0920, ext. 4125

What cost and commitment do I have to make?

There is no cost to participate in the program, only your time and commitment to help keep Queen Anne's County beautiful.

Volunteer groups must pick up litter along a specific segment of roadway twice annually for two consecutive years. Participation in the countywide cleanup events will count towards the yearly requirement.
