Adopt-A-Highway Program

Defiance County Environmental & Administrative Services also promotes the Adopt-A-Highway program. This program allows groups, individuals, families, etc. to “adopt” a two mile stretch of County roadway.

Defiance County Environmental & Administrative Services provides trash bags and will arrange pickup of the trash collected. The adopting group will be required to pickup up their requested two mile road, a minimum of four times a year and to adopt the roadway for a two year period. The adopting group will need to sign a contract for their roadway and a sign with their name (business or organizational name) will be erected on both ends of their two mile adopted road.

The State also has an Adopt-A-Highway program and people or organizations can adopt a two mile stretch of State Highways. To obtain more information on the State Adopt-A-Highway program, please contact Ted Foster at (419) 222-9055, or visit the Department of Transportation’s website.

Roads are available for adoption! If interested or if you want more information, please call 419-782-5442.
