Adopt A Highway is a South Carolina Department of Transportation program that has been around since 1988. Groups sign up to pick up litter on a specific highway or road in the county. This involves at least two miles of the highway, and the group must participate in at least four clean-ups a year. The group is committed for a two year period.
Businesses, churches, schools, civic organizations, Boy Scout or Girl Scout Troops, sororities or fraternities or any other group of the sort may participate in Adopt a Highway. The SCDOT will post a sign to recognize the groups for their efforts to keep the highways clean.
