The Adopt-a-Road (AAR) program sponsored by Keep Forsyth County Beautiful enables citizens to demonstrate their community pride by removing unsightly litter that accumulates along our county roadways. Individuals or groups adopt a mile (or more) section of road which they clean-up on a quarterly basis. A minimum 2 year commitment is preferred. Supplies such as gloves, trash bags, and safety vests are provided by KFCB.
Ideal for non-profit organizations, clubs, businesses, scout troops, schools, homeowner associations, or families. The AAR program directly benefits the community through litter reduction and prevention, greater civic involvement, and beautification.
Why adopt a road?
It makes a visible positive impact on our local environment
It helps build community pride
It's an easy to organize group or team building activity
It reduces county litter removal costs and saves taxpayers money
Public recognition feels good. And encourages others to step-up.
It's a great workout!
